What will we accomplish?

The objectives of the course are to build (or rebuild) your promotional materials, making it a breeze to put yourself out there for opportunities. We will also learn EXACTLY how to use them. In the scope of this work- you will discover who you are as an artist, what kind of work you want to be doing, how you wish to participate in your culture, how much to charge for it, and get you a map to go where you want to go.

As an added perk, you'll finish the course with bomb-ass promotional materials that authentically represent YOU.


How do I know if the Audacity Project is right for me?

You should meet these criteria to excel at the program:
1- Access to a computer and the Internet, with basic computer literacy.

2- The willingness and desire to brave the wild unknown and deal with your shit, even when it's uncomfortable. The ability to call yourself out and take responsibility for your emotions when you're making excuses.

3- The ability to pay for the program without suffering or hurting your quality of life.

4- Competence in your discipline, with a desire for excellence. Have the basics under your belt. Basic competence.

5- Hunger for something more. Don't take this course if you're happy and satisfied with your lot- take it when you're at a crossroads, feeling lost in the woods, and need direction. Take it when you find yourself at the end of a sidewalk. Take it when you know there's something better for you than what you currently have.


And for the love of all that is holy take it when you are ready to feel afraid and take action anyway.


If you know you want more, and better, from your creative practice, I made this for you.

If you want to participate in your culture in a real way, and get tangible results, I made this for you.

If you are tired of being passed over, or waiting around for the world to notice you, I made this for you.

I want you to claim your place in your world. It belongs to you- I will show you how. You are already at the table.

Still not sure? Let's chat! You can schedule a free 15 minute consult call with me here. I'd love to help you navigate what the best next steps will be!

Frequently Asked Questions


When does the course start and finish?
This Cycle runs August 8-October 1, 2021.
How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
What if I don't want to do this professionally, but I still want to develop as an artist? Is The Audacity Project still a good fit for me?
YES!!! A large percentage of the artists that come through my door have full time jobs that they love and want to keep. But they also know they want to grow as an artist and pursue greater opportunity with tools and education under their belts for best practices moving forward.
I want to grow my business as a coach...will this program help me?
Many artists have gone through the project as a coach, and as a performer, and some as a company. The same principles have proven effective for all approaches.
How much time should I expect to spend on the Audacity Project?
You will get the best results if you make this project (and yourself) a priority for the next 8 weeks. Some weekly tasks will take you an hour or two, some will take you 4, or more- it varies according to the task and how you process the work. It is better to spend a little time on it each day than a chunk of several hours once a week. You really will get out of it what you put into it.
Is there a scholarship fund for BIPOC artists and creatives?
YES! This fund is an ongoing effort to support the voices of BIPOC artists in the creative landscape, by supplementing the tuition to The Audacity Project and the professional development it facilitates. To claim this fund by way of a coupon code, please book a call with me! I would be honored for you to benefit from it! https://calendly.com/theaudacityproject/15min
