Developing Effective Mission and Vision Statements

Wednesday, November 30, 7:00 – 8:30p CST
Online Workshop for Artists and Creatives
Presented by Bethany McLemore Stewart

Artists use mission and vision statements to help outline the goals and intended impact of their art for themselves, for their audiences (often via a website’s “About” page), and for fundraising—for grant applications, crowdfunding, or individual donors. In this workshop, we’ll discuss these short but important forms and how to integrate them into your website.

In this workshop, you will:
Learn about various purposes of mission and vision statements.
– Learn how to define your audience and use it to develop your statements.
– Start generating ideas for content.
Learn how to communicate your mission & vision in an engaging way.
– See examples of statements & “About” pages from artists & creatives in a variety of disciplines.
