DEEP: Beyond Incorporation: Fiscal Sponsorship Then and Now
Facilitator: Alex Goleman
Tuesday, January 23 / 6:30-8:30 pm / FREE
Gibney Dance 280 Broadway (Enter at 53A Chambers)
Designed for both emerging and established artists looking to expand and define their business practices, we will take a closer look at Fiscal Sponsorship, and how it can assist artists by providing an alternative business structure. Originally imagined as a stepping stone to non profit incorporation, Fiscal Sponsorship is now a sustainable model in its own right. This session will cover both the experiences of fiscally sponsored artists, as well as how fiscal sponsorship impacts business practices.
DEEP investigates the points in an artistic career where dancers most need support and provides opportunities for learning and skill-building through a series of free sessions. DEEP was developed by Gibney Dance Artistic Associate Devin Oshiro as an Advocacy Fellowship project. Advocacy Fellowships are projects initiated by Gibney Dance Company members which aim to engage the dance community and advocate for pressing issues in the field.
