Creative Strength Swap

ORGANIZED BY SMALL BUT MIGHTY ARTS AND ARTISTIC REBUTTAL

at the Painted Bride Arts Center, Philadelphia.

Local creatives looking for an alternative to traditional funding and resource models – look no further! At the Creative Strength Swap you can offer your skills, knowledge and time in exchange for helpful resources from other participating creatives to complete a project or goal. Past participants have swapped skills in web design in exchange for photography skills, or resume writing in exchange for volunteer work.

The day-long event will include an expert panel of artists and arts leaders speaking about their experiences and the strength of creative partnerships. Swap participants will then attend helpful planning sessions to identify their transferable skills and learn how to create a successful resource swap partnership. After lunch, attendees will participate in an interactive swap activity to identify potential partners and begin the first steps in the process. Coaches will be on hand to help groups work through feasible agreements and offer their knowledge and expertise throughout the process. Participants will also receive a list of helpful resources and have the opportunity to connect with local resource-based organizations during the day.
