Practice self-management in Madrid, The Construction of the Artist, Part 2, The Eclectic Tomorrow

How to make a living as an artist – Practice self-management

The Construction of the Artist – Part II – in Madrid

Two important steps towards a prosperous career as an artist are learning self-management and as well knowing how to incorporate its tools in your professional life. The second part of this Madrid-based workshop reinforces and shows you in many exercises how to successfully make use of all the techniques and tricks that self-management holds in store for you, to shine and thrive in your artistic career.

Welcome to the second part of the workshop The Construction of the Artist, here in Madrid as well known as: The Reality-Check. Even though this workshop is primarily dedicated to the participants of the first part, it is open to basically every creative who wants to practice self-management to improve his/her career. (Only to make sure that all participants are on the same level of knowledge and self-knowledge, participants that haven´t joined us in the first workshop for self-management will be interviewed briefly beforehand to see if this advanced workshop is recommendable for them at this moment.)

Knowing self-management and actually applying it are two very different things

But in the end, no matter if you join us to perfect the things you have learned in the first self-management workshop or if you are an artist or creative who has already identified his/her personal obstacles or if you just need a little wake-up call… Everybody needs to regularly question his/her way of doing and approaching the things that form part of a creative career. Because especially the art world evolves so quickly, that people who can not keep up with it will be soon replaced by the ones that can. Said that, having all the tips and tricks learned to make a living in the arts or practicing reliable techniques of self-management for years does not prevent a talented and motivated person from failing at some point.

So updating your self-management tools is the key to a long-lasting creative career

We will review the important facts of the first workshop and put all techniques into practice so you´ll get to the next level of living as a full-time artist. Furthermore, you will be learning from case studies to deepen your knowledge, which will help you to tackle your obstacles successfully in real life. Group discussions will be the steady companion of each of the four modules to help exchange experiences and to give all creative participants the chance to learn from each other. Additionally, each session is accompanied by practical exercises to analyze oneself and to benefit from the group´s feedback and advise.

And last but not least small homework assignments and short questionnaires after each module will facilitate getting to the core of each one´s personal “success enemies” that need to be eliminated for good in order to shine as an artist. So based on the four modules of the first self-management workshop you will get right down to business and practice the hell out of it until all fears and doubts have vanished.
