Creative Accountability Group for Artists

Announcing the first Artist Soapbox Creative Accountability Group for Artists

Facilitated by Mara Thomas and Tamara Kissane

  • Join a small group of highly-motivated artists in a supportive environment and take regular action in your creative work.
  • Set achievable goals, participate in a private Facebook group, and meet once weekly for 5 weeks.
  • Consider the creative obstacles and creative resources in your life that affect making your work.
  • Leverage the power of the group to take one more step toward finding your creative voice.

This group is for women and nonbinary folks of all races, religions, and with [dis]abilites.

As the first ASBX Accountability Group, this is a beta version. The cost for participation in this group is $75 per person and is limited to 6 participants. Our intention is to add more groups in the future.

Because of the group nature, a commitment is required. We’re looking for highly-motivated people who are willing to ask for — and give — help and support, and are willing to show up. One of the group’s goals is to encourage regular action from each member. Everyone will post weekly goals, and report back at the end of the week on what they did and didn’t achieve. [There’s no shaming or penalty for falling short of goals (that’s how we learn), but a good-faith effort is required. Since you set your goal, you choose the amount of time you can accommodate in your life.] Questions? artistsoapbox@gmail.com
