We’ll be joined by leading arts organizations and industry experts, so ask away!

As part of the day, we’re hosting a special #ArtistHotline Guest Chat from 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM EST, “Crowdfunding Strategies” with John T. Trigonis, Film & Creative Campaign Strategist at Indiegogo; Nia King, a multimedia journalist who has funded two books and a podcast through crowdfunding; and Jay Silver, an inventor whose Kickstarter-funded project, MaKey MaKey, was inducted into The Museum of Modern Art’s permanent collection.

We’ll finish the day with a Twitter Q&A from 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM EST with Sarah Corpron, NYFA’s Acting Director of Business Services, who will answer last minute questions you may have about the NYFA Fiscal Sponsorship application before the next quarterly deadline, December 31.

Our goal is to help artists discover the resources needed, online and off, to develop sustainable careers.
