I recently came across this article from the Huffington Post. It is a powerful post from a dancer named Shawn Lent. An artist who embodies the concept of a sustainable future in the arts. “Shawn is the rare individual that excels at both the visionary and operational work of running a program. She is trained as a dancer and choreographer and is also a consummate, professional manager. She can access the best from both worlds and offers an expansive new model of leadership well suited to the needs of the culturally diverse global economy.” Cynthia Weiss, former Assistant Director at the Center for Community Arts Partnerships, Columbia College Chicago.
And here is another post from her website that gives you an insight into the pathways a sustainable career can take.
