Artistic Inspiration: How to be Social Collective

Artistic inspiration comes in many forms, from the beauty of nature to the hustle and bustle of city life. One unique source of inspiration for artists is being part of a social collective, like the one established by a dynamic artist collective based in Dallas Fort Worth.

Since its inception in 2017, this artist collective, referred to as HTBS ("How to be Social"), has been making waves in the art community by not only providing a platform for artists to showcase their talents but also by offering valuable resources and opportunities to help them thrive.

With a focus on digital strategies, events, sponsorships, and social skills training, HTBS has successfully closed deals with top-tier sponsors and has hired a sizable number of artists.

What sets HTBS apart is its unwavering commitment to giving back to the creator economy. To date, they have contributed a substantial sum of $60,000 to support artists in pursuing their creative endeavors. Looking ahead, HTBS has ambitious plans to expand its reach beyond Dallas Fort Worth and partner with cities across the globe, including locations in LA, NY, Canada, Japan, and beyond.

Central to HTBS's mission is the belief that artists can reach their full potential through community, education, and creation. This ethos is evident in the array of monthly events they host, such as the Stay Social Meetup, The Creator Social, and Social Sounds, each supported by various sponsors aligned with the themes of the gatherings.

HTBS's vision for the future includes establishing physical locations in major cities and college towns worldwide, complete with art studios, a coffee and tea shop, and a vibrant color scheme that reflects their playful and lively spirit. In addition to their event-based revenue streams, HTBS also generates income through Patreon offerings and has plans to launch merchandise in the coming years.

For artists seeking a supportive community, valuable resources, and a platform to showcase their talents, joining a social collective like HTBS can be a game-changer. By fostering connections, providing education, and promoting creativity, HTBS is paving the way for artists to thrive and reach new heights in their artistic endeavors.
