The Freedom School for Artists(FSFA) is a popular education space that fosters critical connections between people, information, resources and skills in order to support the cultivation of sustainable professional art careers and practices. This space is maintained for and by networks of artists and cultural workers who identify as queer, trans, Black, indigenous and/or as people of color.
The core offerings of the FSFA are a crop of popular education spaces centered around sharing knowledge about the background work that goes into developing a sustainable career as an artist and/or cultural worker. Each popular education space is hosted by a team of 3 - 4 people who can offer their expertise, bring in other knowledgeable people and act as tech support, facilitators, hosts and presenters. Each space is a twelve week long course that meets 2 times a week.
Informal social gatherings are offered as an opportunity for people to deepen their relationships with each other.
