ABOUT WHAT IF
|Conference:||What If – Portland|
|When:||July 24 – 26, 2012|
|Where:||Portland, Oregon … (The Jupiter Hotel)|
WHAT IF is a conference for visual artists (you) and artist-preneurs looking for business success while creating with originality. There are no formulas or magic bullets here, no “do as I do” will be preached. Instead, WHAT IF is a place where the lines between expert and student are blurred as our Innovators facilitate your dreams, not pontificate about their own.
Why? Because it’s about time. There is no other conference like WHAT IF. This is a SUBSTANCE over style event where we’re serving up a helping of INNOVATION and a side order of MONEY MAKING IDEAS. Most importantly, we’re going to challenge you to MEET YOUR POTENTIAL, to BE YOURSELF, and to become part of a COMMUNITY of other artist-preneurs.
WHAT IF is about more than sitting in a classroom with strangers. It’s about sitting around and sharing ideas, it’s about chatting with new friends over dinner and catching up with old ones over drinks. It’s about having a place for everyone – no one is ever left out. With small groups after every session, break outs, planned spontaneity, and a place to be every night, even the most introverted will come out of their shell. Whether it’s grooving to the sweet sounds of our DJ, listening to the live music at the lobby bar, or just an extended dinner, your COMMUNITY will be there, from the moment you arrive, to long after you’ve gone home.
