GYST Radio is a resource for all information on the business of art, hybrid careers and other DIY strategies for a successful career in the arts. We believe that artists should define their own careers on their own terms, and we provide the necessary tools and resources for doing so. We have great resources for artists (see below) but this radio broadcast concentrates on DIY artists, independent curators and arts organizations that support artists. Instead of waiting to be validated by a "gate keeper" come and find out strategies for doing it yourself here. We also post relevant content from other providers, so enjoy.
