The s6k Artist Toolbox is your source for tips, strategies and a host of other nuggets that can help you with your artistic production. We will also be a source for high quality contracts for media creation, performance, rental applications.

Our network is comprised of people that span the spectrum of the entertainment, journalism and activist communities. They have years of experience / training...also, have a strong need to speak up.

The entertainment industry is one of the most amazingly wonderful industries to be part of [and certainly to work in]. But, since it's nearly unregulated, the dark underside of the industry is always lurking about. By that we don't mean drugs or risky sexual encounters. We mean an entertainment business structure that is seemingly designed to extract each ounce of artistry, profit, originality and meaning from any endeavour it gets its claws into.

Our mission here is to help you get the right information you need to be in control [artistically / strategically / financially] of your own art.

The DIY [Do It Yourself] arts movement has been empowering people for generations. It especially has become prominent since the internet became a vehicle to promote and release media.

For years artists have been at the mercy of the "entertainment" industry. They [we] could only hope that we wouldn't get screwed like the people on all the "Where are they at Now?" type shows.

Most of the people that could give solid information from the inside were [are] too entrenched to speak the unvarnished truth, due to fear of some punitive action.

 "Progressive art can assist people to learn not only about the objective forces at work in the society in which they live, but also about the intensely social character of their interior lives. Ultimately, it can propel people toward social emancipation."  - Salvador Dali

the life experience forum

We want to introduce you to our Life Experience Forum.
For many years, artists have been screwed over and had nowhere to turn. That's where we come in.

We will provide you with a forum to tell people about YOUR artistic life experiences. Recycling your stories will help someone learn a valuable lesson, and hopefully avoid the pitfalls you (or we) couldn't. Try to stay on the facts and away from insults. Also, be sure to tell where you think you made your mistakes. All stories will be presented unedited.

We do not want to use the names of the venues or people involved. We will use a "[redacted]" symbol in the place of any name, company or exact location. We just want the complete situation, as truthfully told as memory permits, to inform and hopefully serve as a warning to someone else.

At the end of each story we will provide a commentary entitled "Time to Break it Down." This is a way to extract the primary points.

Send us your story. email - contact@s6k.com

You are also asked to comment on the stories to flush out all the lessons to be learned. email - contact@s6k.com
