Creative Career Coaching for Directors and Choreographers with David J. Diamond
Thursday February 11, 2016
SDCF, 321 West 44th St., STE 804 NYC
With the continually changing landscape of the American and International theatre, it can be challenging to find the best path to a satisfying, consistent and rewarding career as a director or choreographer. Keeping abreast of the field is just one aspect of the artist’s job, another is being adaptable to the changes; and the most important is using your artistic gifts to create the opportunities you desire. Career coach (and former SDCF Executive Director) David J. Diamond will discuss how you stay true to your desires in an unsteady world and he will engage in a conversation about your particular challenges at whatever stage you are in your career.
This event is free. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday February 8, 2016. Seating is limited.
