Master hambone artist Danny "Slapjazz" Barber and his 2009 apprentice Sekani Thomas.How do you best represent and document your work? To people who may not be familiar with the complexities of a tradition? In merely a few minutes?

Join us on July 17, 2010, with other artists, presenters, and funders in conversation about artist work samples (video, audio, images, etc.) which are often required to accompany grant applications and proposals.

Saturday, July 17, 2010
2:00 pm to 5:00pm
Bay Area Video Coalition
2727 Mariposa Street, 2nd Floor
San Francisco 94110

Facilitated by Tyese Wortham (World Arts West/San Francisco Ethnic Dance Festival) the opening hour will address work sample and documentation challenges for traditional artists, with sage tips from fellow traditional arts champions Frances Phillips (Creative Work Fund/Walter & Elise Haas Fund) and Roko Kawai (Yerba Buena Center for the Arts & Philadelphia Folklore Project) on how to put your best foot forward in representing your work, what review panels look for, and resources to develop compelling work samples.

The second part of the session will offer a chance for traditional artists and organizations to show and share work samples (first come, first served) to spark supportive discussion, direct feedback, questions, and insights amongst participants in the room.

Sign up to show your work or come to share your perspective and learn what other artists are doing with their work samples.  To RSVP and to sign up for a slot to show your sample, contact us via email or at (415) 346-3800 soon.
