Show Your WorkAs home to many experimental collectives, artists, activists, and big thinkers, Seattle is a mecca for creative people. Despite the daily growth of Seattle’s creative community, “getting discovered” remains one of the biggest hurdles to creative success. Fortunately, bestselling author Austin Kleon has built a roadmap showing the way to discovery — by enhancing existing creativity. In SHOW YOUR WORK! 10 Ways to Share Your Creativity and Get Discovered, he offers concrete advice for becoming known. By sharing your work with others, letting them borrow your creative process, and building upon Seattle’s already-present community of creativity, your work will be shown, seen, and discovered. He also offers words of warning about the dangers of oversharing your work, the age of the internet, and how to market your work in an increasingly digital age. In the end, the “ecology of talent” will unlock, foster, and spread creativity. Kleon is the author of Steal Like an Artist and Newspaper Blackout.

Presented by: Town Hall and Elliott Bay Book Company, as part of the Arts & Culture series. Sponsored by City Arts.
