Well, it’s official – I am the new interim director of Generous Art! I’m super excited, nervous, and grateful to move into this role, and I have big plans for the organization. I’m working closely with Shea Little of Big Medium to create a very necessary tool for Austin artists and creatives. Our vision is to create a professional organization for artists and creatives (envision AIA hooking up with on old school trade organization). As the economy in Austin continues to ramp up, we as creatives need to step into our power and keep up, hopefully even get out ahead of everyone and have a hand at driving the ship even! And in order to do this, we need an easy, one-stop-shop where we can learn about whats happening, have access to the wide variety of resources, and feel the collective power of our sector of the economy. It’s all big ideas, and I’m excited at the prospect of even being able to play in this arena! A big thanks to Calder Kamin for being a total badass and giving me the inside scoop on Generous Art. It feels really good to move towards these goals, and I can’t wait to see what comes! New friends, new challenges, and less metal shavings in my clothes! Stay tuned for more!
