A series of insightful presentations from industry insiders and professionals.
Miroslav Wiesner: Call My Agent? Artist Representation in an Age of Creative Independence
Founder of Surefire Agency in San Francisco, Miro has been administrating shows for an eclectic array of experimental and left-field artists since 2008. Surefire's approach to talent buying is more holistic than corporate agencies - designed to better serve the needs of fringe artists who may not be able to employ a traditional full team. His presentation will be focused on the nuts and bolts of a booking agent's role and why that role is still relevant to independent artists in the age of DIY creation and production.
