Artist Professional Development Opportunity

The Locals is launching a series of networking and professional development events geared towards local professional artists titled “How Not To Starve: Professional Development for Artists”. The first meeting, will be  a mixer taking place on July 17th at 8pm at The Locals, 1024 Van Ronkle in Downtown Conway. At this event artists will have the opportunity to meet  and interact with local colleagues and other art professionals. Organizers will obtain feedback and record suggestions about what kind of opportunities participants are interested in having in future events.


“How Not To Starve” was inspired by the idea that artists function best in a community where they can share resources, give one another feedback and collaborate. The series of special events is intended to allow artists an opportunity to forge relationships with one another in order to gain new audiences for their work who can provide meaningful feedback, advice and encouragement. “In order to succeed, artists need to support each other, share resources in the form of equipment, materials, and knowledge.” says The Locals special events coordinator, Beth Wilson Norwood, “Our hope is that the series will result in new and exciting collaborations between artists and other art professionals.”  


“How Not To Starve” is open to artists who work in any medium as well as other art professionals. There is no cost to attend however RSVP is required. To register to the event (or for the series) visit For more information please contact Beth Wilson Norwood at [email protected] or at (501)472-5037
