Learning Moment

Artist Trajectory Path adapted from Petterson (2014)

FITA believes in supporting artists at every stage of their career. That is why we have developed a unique Artist Trajectory Path, adapted from Petterson (2014), to help artists grow their value over time. We call this process the Learning Moment, which is a continuous process of learning, feedback, and reflection that helps artists develop their skills, knowledge, and experience. Through the Learning Moment, artists can identify their strengths and weaknesses, set goals, and take actionable steps to achieve their career aspirations. By providing a framework for artists to grow and develop their value over time, we are helping to build a more sustainable and equitable future for the arts industry. We believe that every artist has the potential to achieve their career goals, and we are committed to helping them along the way.
