Workshops
  Workshop: Creatice Capitals Authentic Branding, with Maxine Lapiduss
Deadline: February 4, 2015

Whether you know it or not, the moment you enter a room, people form an opinion about you. Only a fraction of your message is conveyed through the words you choose. What you wear, the energy and enthusiasm you convey, and how you engage others all affect how people respond to you. Corporations work exhaustively to calibrate and convey their brand. As artists we can employ the same approaches to communicate more clearly about ourselves and our work.
