Crafting a Creative Career
with Felicia Holman
Designed to nurture the agency/autonomy/creativity and mobility of emerging artrepreneurs of ANY discipline, Chicago-based interdisciplinary artist and arts administrator Felicia Holman returns to CAC to present her visiting artist seminar, Crafting a Creative Career.
As a respected artrepreneurial resource within her intersecting communities, Felicia presents Crafting a Creative Career as an immediately-actionable knowledge sharing platform.

- “To Thine Ownself, Be True”: Communicating Internally
- Using Your Empathy Muscle
- Identifying Non-Negotiables
- Building & Maintaining Relationships
- Steering the Ship
- Framing & Messaging
Attendees will leave Crafting a Creative Career with tools & approaches to implement in:
- Enhancing personal/professional and organizational development
- Confidently owning and prioritizing their respective practices/processes
- Increasing authenticity & integrity in their audience/community engagement
Crafting a Creative Career is gleaned from Felicia’s recent professional development presentations for organizations and events including Illinois Humanities, Chicago Artists Coalition, Red Clay Dance Company and the sold-out inaugural Envisioning Equity Conference.
