Creating a Sense of Artistic Community

By December 8, 2012

Follow me on:

Artists are at their best when provided with a sense of community and mutual support. Such an atmosphere encourages both creativity and inspiration, along with the sense of fellowship that always helps artists to truly thrive.

Red Shirt Entertainment, a New York-based entertainment company, is working to create such a mutually supportive artistic community with a new series of "Red Shirt Artist Salons," events which take place on the second Sunday of every month. The next one will run from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, December 9 at Red Shirt's headquarters at 18 West 23rd Street in Manhattan.

Inspired by the spirit of the Harlem Renaissance, a rich cultural movement born in the early 1920s and 1930s, the Red Shirt Salons hope to encourage networking, opportunity, and new achievement in theatre, music, literature, dance, and more. Learn more about Red Shirt's Artist Salons in my full article on their goals and inspirations here.
