About this EventGrounded in the same tools and techniques that FORGE provides its consulting clients, The Artist's Roadmap is a holistic Workshop that trains makers to articulate their purpose and plan for their future. Encouraging you to treat your goals as defined destinations rather than uncertain outcomes, The Artist's Roadmap offers you the language, logistics, landmarks to chart your course on the road to success.
