Amanda Palmer Offers Words of Wisdom for all Artists

No one gives more of herself to her work or to her audience community than performer-songwriter Amanda Palmer. And no one has better defined today’s mutually supportive relationship between an artist and the people for whom art is made.
Amanda was invited to speak at the TED Conference this year. We recommend this 13-minute Talk to every Cultural Weekly reader; in it she reveals the secret truth of how artists can — and must — get money to support themselves and their work.
