The Director's Chair
Many places on the internet offer artists the opportunity to voice their experiences, opinions and, at times, complaints about festivals, both individual shows and the industry itself.
None that we know of, other than Art-Linx, provide dedicated space for festival directors, chairpersons and staff to voice their own views on either overall or specific topics that influence and affect how they operate their events.
Hence this page, a continuation of the same space in the original Art Festival newsletter. Starting in January, we will publish The Director's Chair as an open forum, written by festival directors and other show staff and volunteers, and offer artists the opportunity to respond to what the columns present.
We hope you will join us in creating a valuable exchange of viewpoints and ideas with the people whose efforts make a major difference in the success of artists at art festivals.
