Esther Robinson on Building a Creative Foundation

Posted September 2nd, 2009 by ingrid

Esther Robinson is da bomb! Seriously. She’s a brilliant filmmaker (A Walk Into The Sea: Danny Williams and the Warhol Factory) and a tireless supporter of artists and creativity. She used to work at Creative Capital and in that spirit of professional development and sustainability has recently founded ArtHome to “help artists build assets and equity through financial literacy, homeownership, self-sufficiency and the responsible use of credit.” Hear, hear I need help with all of that! You can read her excellent Filmmaker article on using credit cards wisely here but you should also watch her inspiring presentation from DIY Days in Philly below – the notion of building a strong body of work over a lifetime, a creative path that can be sustained (as opposed to hobbling from under-resourced project to under-resourced project), definitely appeals to me.
