Welcome to DCE455!My name is Duane Cyrus and I am your instructor for this course. I’m looking forward to working with you as we explore strategies for sustaining a successful career or business in the arts through the following overarching tasks:
- Reading, discussing, and learning about how entrepreneurship and best business practices impact us as artists of any discipline.
- Developing useful career related documents—I call these “Artists Tools” and they are some of the documents you may find necessary to launch your professional careers or business.
- Practicing important skills related to career success, in particular—speaking, pitching, and presenting your work.
- And collaborating through project development.
