You Are Invited To Giant Steps 2017

At Giant Steps 2017, we’ll explore what it means to be "unabashedly, unapologetically yourself" in building your artistic career or your business with conversations about:

  • The 'Right' Way vs. Your Way: Moving from what we think we're supposed to do…to forging our own path in our field or industry--and why that's a challenging, but powerful, recipe for growth.
  • Alignment: Why aligning our work with ourselves can boost our businesses and careers. 
  • Competition, collaborations, audiences and customer bases: how they shift when you know who you are and what you do (or don't do).
  • How we get in our own way: impostor syndrome, self-doubt, tentative steps, and getting past it.
  • The forces and situations that keep us from being ourselves and push us into conformity, code-switching, and mediocrity. 
  • Survival, solidarity, and social justice. Protecting ourselves and each other in tumultuous times while also building businesses and making art that pushes back and presses forward.
  • And more...


Most importantly, we'll use our time at Giant Steps 2017 to inspire each other to pursue our work in a way that best fits with who we are. 


Invest in your unabashed, unapologetic self. You're worth it.
