Ever felt like you needed to have a tough conversation but didn't quite know how to get it started or successfully see it through? Ever had to negotiate the price of your work or fees for time and labor? Ask for a studio visit? Solicit donations for a project? 

Expert coach and litigator, Susan Koenig, will lead a hands-on workshop designed to help artists facilitate the sometimes difficult, but always essential, conversations that lead to new opportunities and help sustain a productive artistic practice. 

WAW is a year-round series of professional development opportunities that focuses on learning practical skills, designed to help Omaha area artists cultivate or refresh the professional aspects of their creative practice. Each month is devoted to one topic. Expert community partners will lead a main learning session, followed by a hands-on, collaborative workshop later in the month. 

Participants will create robust networks of peers and professional contacts alongside these opportunities to self-evaluate and learn from others’ experiences.

Every session/workshop is free and open to the public. OCI cannot offer childcare services, but parents you are more than welcome to bring your children if childcare is not available to you. 

The WAW Series is sponsored in part by the Iowa West Foundation.
