Fourteen students and five faculty members from Webster University attended the 15th Annual Self Employment in the Arts (SEA) Conference, Feb. 20-21, in Lisle, Illinois. The two-day event supports aspiring artists by providing them with the entrepreneurial knowledge and skills they need to establish and maintain a career as an independent artist.

George Herbert Walker School of Business & Technology associate professors Barrett Baebler and Joseph Roberts presented and moderated the professional development experience for the group. Coleman Foundation faculty fellow Julia Griffey presented a panel on utilizing social media platforms for launching a business, while Roberts presented opening remarks and introduced the keynote speaker. Coleman fellows Chris Sagovac and Kathy Corley of Webster’s School of Communications also attended.

Kristie Lyon, an undergraduate student pursuing a Certificate in Entrepreneurship at Webster, received a Judge’s Choice Award for her photography at the SEA Conference.
