A compilation of local artists will address opportunities that exist to showcase and exhibit work and performance in Colorado Springs. How do you best approach a gallery, venue, or other arts space with your work and portfolio? What are the logistics of booking a music gig, gallery show, recital, or showcasing another body of work? What are actions you can take today to advance your visibility as a local artist? 

Light refreshments will be served!


Prior to Courses for Creatives, from 4:30 - 5:30 PM, PPAC is hosting an ArtPOP event at S.P.Q.R. Here is more info on this performance!
