Artists working in all mediums will find something of value in this free e-book by Andrew Simonet.
In 200 very pithy pages, Simonet covers topics like The Role of the Artist, Planning, Mission, Money, Time and Principles. The guidance he gives in the Mission chapter about writing your artist statement is particularly helpful.
Andrew Simonet is a choreographer, writer, and founder of Artists U, a grassroots planning and professional development program for artists. He co-directed Headlong Dance Theater from 1993 to 2013.
