I plan and curate art shows to bring people together who have directly, or indirectly, been affected by cancer, so they can share their experiences through art.
I do this on behalf of groups, companies and organizations who hire me because they want to support the artists and their communities.
My job is to put on an art show for you that’s deeply meaningful and wildly successful! I want us to bring people together for a fun and healing experience that benefits everyone involved.
My role as the executive producer of your healing art show will change depending on what kind of show you want, your goals and what in-house resources you have. I will do everything from event-planning to artist-wrangling to marketing to hanging art and whatever else it takes to create an opportunity for people to make art and connections.
I will be your curator, organizer, event planner and helper extraordinaire.
I am a reliable and professional source of creativity, organization, experience, support, honesty, clarity and humor.
I am responsive and accountable, you will know where your project stands and how we can stay in touch.
My goal is to balance being of excellent service to you and taking good care of myself.
I am healthier than I have ever been and to stay that way, I do not do 24/7 and I unplug on a scheduled and appropriate basis. Unless I’m working an event, I don’t work weekends. I take vacations. I hope you do all of the above too.
I am comfortable with heavy conversations and I carry tissues at all times.
I am the owner of a hard-earned cancer card. I rarely play it.
You are my client and you provide a lovely point-of-contact person for me to work with for the length of the project. Or maybe two lovely people, but no design-by-committee (aka Death by a thousand cuts).
Your organization is interested in being of service, two-way conversations and developing relationships.
You are ready to invest in a fair and honorable exchange which allows me to provide you with thorough and generous service and to support my own well-being.
Healthy boundaries are on your must-have list.
On Working with Humans
Life happens. Tragedy, mistakes, weather delays, personalities, snafus, the dreaded FUBAR, and human-ness at its finest.
It’s super helpful to be comfortable saying “I don’t know, I’ll find out” and “I’m sorry, my mistake.”
We can come up with creative solutions to problems, no drama and no shenanigans.
We’re dealing with life and death and cancer and its aftermath, almost everything else is small stuff.
Keeping these things in mind is especially important when there’s event-planning going on. ;-D
