Note To Self: Creative Chicago Expo Coming March 12th!

The great thing about living in Chicago is that it is a city that truly appreciates creativity. As the city awakens from a long and hard winter, the creative juices begin flowing again and the streets seem to come alive with activity as bands, artists, dancers, actors and a plethora of creative folks shift into high gear.

To celebrate this city's creative side, Chicago Artists Resource is proud to announce that 2011 Chicago Creative Expo will be held on Saturday, March 12. The Creative Expo is a day-long event connecting the many facets of Chicago's arts community - individual artists, businesses and organizations working in dance, music, film, fashion, theater, visual arts, literary arts and design - with services, spaces, information, and networks. Additionally, over 20 different workshops will be held, covering such areas as:

# Personal Branding -- An Artist's Most Authentic Palette
# Communication vs. Perception -- How are you coming across?
# WordPress Web Sites for Performing and Visual Artists
# Pitching the Media 2.0
# The Five Keys to Email Marketing
# Advocacy 101
# Licensing Basics
# Tapping Into Business Incentives
# After You Have A Website
# How They Did It – Visual Artists
# Art in Vacant Storefronts – One Year Later
# Free Business Resources for Creatives
# How to find an Intern/how to find an Internship that fits your career
# Music Publishing
# Fostering New Works

In other words, if you are involved in any sort of creative endeavor...a band, for example...there is much to be gained from attending this event, as it will put you directly in touch with other creative folks, as well as organizations that provide services and/or networking opportunities. Through such connections, you could very well take your creative passion to the next level.

Oh, but surely something like this will cost an arm and a leg to attend, right?
