Keywords: be yourself, love yourself, dream
We don't believe in the absolute necessity of "networking", we won't encourage you to "sell yourself", we won't push you to build you social profiles and increase your online presence. Being an accomplished artist is neither about the number of your followers on instagram, nor about how many professional contacts do you have. Our approach and our values are far from the mainstream coaching techniques and discourses. Others would say: "Find an art mentor", "Treat art like a business", "Network with the art community", "Market yourself and your artistic talents" or "Work with an art agent". Bullshit. Be yourself, accept yourself, love yourself. Free yourself from your class, from your position, from your social status! Stop wanting to prove yourself to the art world, to be validated with an institution, stop using terminologies and theoretical references just because it is "required". Stop being manipulated by the market, stop creating for open calls, stop adapting your art, stop responding to trends. Resist, defy, revolt! Dare to be you: defy self-doubt, fearlessly follow your own path and be confidently yourself!
