Faces from the 2012 Artist Retreat

In July, Creative Capital convened nearly 250 grantees, consultants, board, staff and guests at Williams College for our Artist Retreat—three days of presentations, focus sessions, one-on-one consultations, and more. (Photo by Roman Iwasiwka)

Before the official start of the Artist Retreat, we had two days of intensive “Pre-Retreat” professional development sessions for the 2012 grantees. Above, Ruby Lerner (CC’s President & Executive Director) introduces PR consultant Carla Sacks, who spoke to the 2012 grantees about working with a publicist.
