#Artists: Write an artistic manifesto this year and stick to it. It should include what you stand for, how you practice and how you’ll reach audiences
An Artist Manifesto
An artist manifesto is useful because it declares to the world what you are about.
It also serves as a list to jog your memory about what’s important to you as an artist.
One of the most important words you can use as an artist is the word ‘No’.
An artist manifesto is a great aid to saying no because if it’s not in the manifesto it’s not what you’re about and you should ultimately say no to it.
On the other hand your manifesto would broadcast to promoters or other like minded individuals what you are about.
Always remember that at times, people book or purchase your art not just for what you’ve made but also for the story of how and why you make things.
