EP7 - Magic City for Emerging Artists with James Echols

Miami artists are learning the art of business, and it’s changing our city in unexpected ways.In the last few decades, the arts have slowly been taken away from children in schools, depriving them of a vital outlet for joy, expression, and intellectual stimulation that not only enhances their performance in other STEM subjects, but also prepares them for life as well-rounded human beings.Coming out of school, Miami youth determined to make it as professional artists soon find little support for their passions in the working world, and many struggle to earn the income and respect their craft deserves. Meanwhile, major cities around the world who have supported their young artist communities now host internationally-renowned festivals that serve as significant economic drivers at a national level.In this episode, James Echols, Founding Director of Life is Art, shares how he’s strengthening Miami’s cultural foundation by teaching fundamental business skills such as finance, marketing, sales, and contract negotiation to emerging artists so they can increase their success and thrive in the supportive ecosystem of savvy artists Miami needs to shine in its next wave of economic, social, and cultural development.Learn more about Life Is Art at: host: Daniel Puder, CEO of My Life My Power.Editing by: Edward DavisRecorded at the Center for Social Change.Follow us: or Comments?
