The South Florida Artists Association and the Broward Cultural Division would like to invite you to attend a special workshop on developing more effective artist statements on Saturday, May 14th from 6:30 to 8:30pm. Participants will learn how to develop an artist’s biography and artist’s statement. We are pleased to have a nationally recognized guest speaker present the topic to our group!
The facilitator, Luz Rodriguez with Visionary Allies, is a seasoned fundraising professional, educator, and artist who combines her artistic sensitivities with her knowledge of U.S. philanthropy to guide and inspire artists of all genres to equip them with the information and tools they need to bring their project visions to reality. Her professional development workshops for artists have been offered nationally and internationally at Artist Space in New York and Centro Leon Cultural Center in the Dominican Republic. Ms. Rodriguez has more than 20 years of fundraising, coalition building and organizational development experience in advocacy and social justice movements. She has held staff and board leadership positions in community-based organizations in the fields of reproductive justice of women of color; youth development; hunger and homelessness. Her oral history and papers are included in the Voices of Feminism archival project at the Sophia Smith Collection at Smith College. She is currently a bilingual training coordinator, at the Foundation Center, NYC, where she is responsible for designing and implementing fundraising training programs with a special focus on delivering English and Spanish training to under-resourced, grassroots organizations.
The event is free, however, we ask that you please RSVP to only if you will definitely be attending. Space is limited, and we want to assure that those that say they will attend will actually be there! Thanks for your cooperation.
