#DebutTuesday: ‘Portugal Now’ To Create Opportunities for Fellow Artists without Personal Agenda with DEBUT Artist Mara Alves
Mara Alves is a second year DEBUT Artist who has been working with for the past year. Mara has just entered her Year of Acceleration at Debut however the initiative we co-founded together, Portugal Now, has elevated her artistic status and has propelled her artistic career more than any gallery show, an artwork sale or a critical writing would have been capable of achieving.
Now there is a ‘trade secret’ there which is if you are prepared to create initiatives and ventures that assist others to become more successful by offering them real and genuine opportunities to be noticed and promoted, your own career takes a new direction which in all cases hugely benefits you. However that does not mean you can stop creating great artworks and hope that’s be enough. Quite on the contrary, that approach needs to be followed up by the biggest level of motivation, determination, commitment and ambition than even before.
Mara will be giving you her side of the story, from the beginning all the way to now and what we have in store for this initiative next and how it’s helped shape her career. Considering we’ve initiated a couple of more such initiatives through Slovakia Now and Lithuania Now, this will be a very inspiring session and I hope you will be able to attend and give your support and encouragement to your fellow Debut artist.
