Anything you can really think of.

Educational Resouces

It would be great to say we just hand out money and let people go, but phase two of these project is the educational aspect. In return for getting money, Artists must document and share their experiences of how their project process went.

Educational Website Articles
Web Tools for self promotion
Classes and Workshops
