Social | #ArtistHotline: September 20 Artist Professional Development Day
Turn a new leaf with #ArtistHotline by joining the conversation on Twitter.
Here’s hoping your summer was a productive one for your art-making! Autumn can be a great time to harness some of those creative juices and direct them towards the business of your art. Hoping to apply for an exciting project grant and looking for application tips? Or is your studio full of new work that you’d like to see hanging on a gallery wall? Join #ArtistHotline this month for advice on professional development questions like these and many others.
#ArtistHotline is an all-day Twitter chat that takes place on the third Wednesday of each month.

We want to hear your questions and tips for best practices!
