It's already sold out but YES Montreal is holding their fifth annual Youth Employment Services Artists Conference this coming Monday. I am proud to be a part of their Board Of Directors and very eager to take part in this special event.
I was just notified that the event is sold out. It is taking place June 13th from 10:00 am - 5:00 pm at the Centaur Theatre here in Montreal, Quebec.
Along with Robert Gervais from Pre2Post Technologies, we will be doing a session on how to build and create a network so aspiring artists can learn what myself and Gervais know, namely: "it's who you know, it's who knows you."
Over three-hundred people will spend the full day attending workshops, panel discussions and networking opportunities. One of the best parts of the YES Montreal Artists Conference is the morning panel discussion which is moderated by Andy Nulman, President, Airborne Entertainment.
Two other key points:
1) The winner(s) of the $5,000 Artists Start-up Grant Contest, co-sponsored by YES Montreal and La Fondation du maire de Montréal pour la jeunesse, will also be announced at the conference.
2) You can also grab a copy of the YES Montreal book, Business Skills For Creative Souls: The Montreal Artist's Handbook - which I also had the honor of helping to organize.
