FOR THE ARTIST
We don't pigeon hole, label or box our artists. Art is not definable. You are not definable.
The Black Sheep Ensemble is a team of visionaries and creatives just like you, who are dedicated to uncovering their authentic artistry.
If you are a fervent artist who is ready to dig deep into creativity… The Black Sheep Ensemble is for you.
This is an experience for any, and all artists. Our courses have a primary focus on the ‘self’ and expanding creativity in general, thus we do not exclude artists outside our own specific industry (Music & Visual Arts). Creativity & art is free-flowing, so are our courses. Any form of artistic expression is welcome.
WHAT WE OFFER YOU
A lot of programs do not focus on the self as much as they do the material aspects of the art or industry. The art cannot be separate from the self, hence why Black Sheep Ensemble focus deeply on self-discovery and personal development. He who knows himself well, will know and express his art best. All creative industries (especially the music industry!) need more humans brave enough to go against the grain.
You can’t rely on the industry to take you where you need to go. A manager, a record label, a gallery etc, will not launch your career for you. Only you can.
A great team is indeed key to a sustainable career. However, this shouldn’t be prioritised before the art itself is refined, or even fully discovered. Young artists in particular need time to grow and develop. With the appropriate environment, tools and attitude, you can become a master of your craft.
We believe it is crucial to develop a deeper sense of self-awareness, and a deeper understanding of creativity as a whole, before skipping ahead to launching the artist. Once the artist has developed a clear vision, a method and a process, then the rest will come naturally.
For the ready & willing, this is where the rubber hits the road. The Black Sheep Ensemble share with the artist what is required to take the dream and manifest it into tangible reality.
Communication, intuition and organisation is key. Building a team and developing the knack to form trustworthy, genuine relationships both inside and outside the industry are crucial to a long term sustainable career.
As artists, we have first hand industry experience to share. We provide access to a range of relevant networks; management, booking agencies, publicists, national & international record labels, publishing companies, and professionals across the board.
With ongoing mentorship and guidance, we provide a space for you to join our network, and to build your own too.
