Description:

As a creative, how do you go about approaching venues to gain visibility by integrating your creative products into the community? What is the best way to approach a music venue, gallery, artist collective, and more? What are the different ways to go about it? What is the most professional way to reach out to venues? What are best practices and what are practices to avoid? How do you make your art and persona stand out from the crowd and become memorable while you're applying? What can you learn from rejection and use it to succeed next time? Learn the answer to these questions and more!
