A common thread through many Lean Into Art Casts is advocating for your art in addition to making it. But how do you find the places or events where you can be of service? If you can’t find the places to be of service, how do you create an event of your own?

Rob and Jerzy are joined by Becca Hillburn for an exploration of finding your place in an art scene or making one on your own.
