Fractured U. Goes Free!
Yes, it’s true! Though we have already told you about a few of our online courses and have noted that enrollment fees would be required to access them, we’re scrapping those fees entirely. Online education is increasingly moving in the direction of free and easily accessible — and we don’t want to get trapped in a 20th Century idea of online education. And we want you to learn stuff! These courses and video workshops are great overviews (and in-depth resources) for certain topics and subjects. They offer truly valuable information that can help you with the business of your art.
Currently, there are six courses (on marketing, fundraising, professional identity, social media marketing, working with agents, and getting your sh*t together) and two video workshops (on independent contractors vs. employees, and wellness programs for dancers). We will be launching four to six more courses during April and May (on audio description for performances, presentation venues, board development, fundraising letters, financial planning, and producing) and more video workshops are in the works.
All you need to do to access the courses is become a member of Fractured Atlas if you’re not already. But, even our free Community Members are able to access the courses!
And the best part is that you can learn on your own time — stop and go as you need to or as you see fit. It’s all up to you, and it’s all at your fingertips. So, the next time you’re tempted to head over to YouTube to watch that OK Go! video again (yes, it’s awesome, we know), why not point your browser to Fractured U. instead? You’ll be glad you did.
