New OER for Performing Artists

  • 1.  New OER for Performing Artists

    Hello fellow OER enthusiasts!
    I'm very pleased to announce this open access week that the Peabody Institute has published our first faculty-authored open textbook!
    Authored by Zane Forshee, Christina Manceor, and Robin McGinness, The Path to Funding: The Artist's Guide to Building Your Audience, Generating Income, and Realizing Career Sustainability, is now available for reading, adoption, and re-use on the Pressbooks platform. This title is licensed CC-BY 4.0.
    Based on coursework developed at Peabody Conservatory, this book breaks down the process of developing an artist mission statement, generating new ideas for creative projects, and creating an engaging project description. It also covers methods for artists to identify their audience, generate a comprehensive project budget, collect compelling work samples, and identify potential funders to support their creative work. Written by a team of active artists and educators, this resource provides creatives with tools and strategies to communicate passionately and effectively about their work and take control of their financial and artistic future.
    This project is a collaboration between Peabody LAUNCHPad, Peabody Learning Innovation, and the Arthur Friedheim Library (AFL).
    This title is als WorldCat for libraries to add to their catalogs.
    We invite you to read the AFL blog post below to learn how this intersects with this year's Open Access Week theme of climate justice:
    Happy OA Week!
