Waiting for the right opportunity to fall into your lap? Don't! January is all about doing it yourself and making your own opportunities.

Join Joel Elia Damon, co-founder of Project Project, and learn what it takes to organize your own exhibitions, performances, festivals, or even start a gallery space with a little elbow grease and a lot of ingenuity.

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.
