Game-changing experiences have these things in common:
-The experience is something that the artist has not done before;
-There is a direct connection between the experience and reaching a career goal; and
-It is the right time in the artist’s career for this experience.
Career goals are as individual as the artists who achieve them. But common factors are that reaching the goal will build career momentum or build your resume. Examples include:
-Opportunities to expose your work to key audiences/collectors/editors;
-Learning skills that will help evolve your work;
-Exploring a new discipline;
-Studying with a new instructor/teacher/mentor.
