Who do we
We seek to support the work of artists and organizations that share our artistic vision. In short, folks that are making art that:
pushes the conversation forward
is unquestionably fun
plays and does away with old conventions
sparks unspeakable joy
sparks unspeakable anger
makes people ugly laugh
makes people ugly cry
encourages a new viewpoint or reengagement with their own
stands on the shoulders of giants - and then leaps off
shows more than it tells
extends the boundaries of art
how does it work?
Working with Super Secret Arts Advisory starts with a free 30 minute consultation with principal Toby Singer. You’ll discuss your artistic journey and background, where you stand right now, and where you are looking to go in the future. Then, you have two options:
Super Secret Advising: a once-a-month, bi-monthly, or weekly advising and mentorship session with Toby that covers strategic planning, your ongoing challenges, and the questions that arise in your work. Toby will help keep you on track - it's basically artist therapy!
If your needs are more substantial or complicated, Toby can work with you to make a plan.
