Chicago Artists Coalition supports emerging and mid-career Chicago artists through our education programs that focus on professional development.
“FIELD/WORK allowed me to overhaul my approach to my career. It was a supportive rigorous process, during which I looked deeply at my values at the same time as I checked off basic tasks like re-writing my artist statement and re-designing my promotional materials.”
“The FIELD/WORK program helped me think deeply about what I want to accomplish as an artist and gave me the tools and support to develop a clear action plan.”
“CAC's workshops offer invaluable instruction and personal interaction on practical topics for artists at any career stage. Additionally, the workshops provided me with significant networking opportunities as an artist new to Chicago.”
“"Presenters at CAC's public education workshops always come so well-prepared, and pack high value into every minute. These sessions not only support my practice with vital professional insight, but also spark rich networking and community long after the session has ended.”
