Fundraising for Independent Artists
Moderator(s): Beryl B. Byles, executive coach
Speaker(s): Dianne Debicella, program director, fiscal sponsorship, Fractured Atlas; Eve Gigliotti, mezzo-soprano; Anne Ricci, general managing diva, Opera on Tap
OPERA America brings you closer to the people you need to know, including managers, arts administrators and fellow artists at Making Connections — professional development and networking events in New York City. Attend informative panel discussions, master classes and artist spotlights with influential professionals in the field, followed by receptions where you can enjoy refreshments and conversation with your colleagues.
Many, if not most, independent artists will have to raise funds during their careers - to produce a piece, attend a training program or simply to continue study. Panelists at this session will discuss their experiences, tips and strategies for cultivating donor relationships and raising funds.
