As an artist, what are the perks of being a part of the DAM network?
By joining DAM, you are taking the first step towards having a professional portfolio (ie, the application process + media post-event) or broadening your already established fan/ supporter base. Equally as important, you are connecting with other like-minded artists who are ready to collaborate and grow.
Please Note: DAM Events is all about building habits and positive rapport, which then opens the doors to getting hired for work and connecting with like-minded artists throughout the Bay. Bring your most positive & professional foot forward - make sure to talk to people at and before the event to get the most out of your time/investment in the DAM network.
