As we fade more fully into fall here in the northeast and the holidays approach, this is a good time to start taking stock of how your year went and planning for what’s next. Artists need rest and rejuvenation just as much – if not even more – than anyone, but they also have an obligation to themselves to ensure there is forward momentum happening in their careers. Here are a few opportunities on the horizon to help you plot out the next stops on your journey.
