2022 CREATIVE MASTERMIND + SONGWRITER COMMUNITY

For the creative being

in need of creative community.

For the artist who is ready

to demonstrate commitment to your work,

to be professional,

regardless of your vocation.

For the artist who just isn't sure

what the next steps are or how to take them.

For the artist who is ready to show up,

ready to face your fear,

ready to share your work and grow

in confidence.

For the one who knows

that loving accountability,

will change your life.

For the artist who is ready to do something

you've never done before,

in order to have something

you've never had before.

For the one who is passionate about creating,

wears many hats

and creates beautiful things

in slim margins. 

For the ARTIST AND...

ARTIST AND serves artists with a unique blend of professionalism and intimacy.

 

We believe in excellence, and we believe our most excellent work comes when we are most connected to our own authentic voice and to authentic community.

 

Our vision for the Mastermind and the Songwriter Community includes creating a space for artists to explore both.

 

The ARTIST AND CREATIVE MASTERMIND is a place for committed artists of all kinds to connect and share--resources, ideas, growth and goals.

 

In good company, you will move in the direction of your unique vision, whether that's by completing a major project or reaching smaller milestones in your craft.

 

We believe that building relationships beyond one's own art form not only connects us with potential collaborators and resources, but also opens our minds to new ideas on all fronts and offers unimaginable opportunity for expansion.

Our SONGWRITER COMMUNITY is an up-level experience to the Mastermind.

 

Songwriters will experience all the connection, accountability and resource-sharing of the Creative Mastermind PLUS participate in opportunities specifically designed to benefit songwriters.
