NY Creative Interns is an organization dedicated to precisely what its name indicates, helping "college students and recent grads to find internships, mentors, and inspiration through networking and meetups."
Tuesday, April 26th, will see their fifth meetup, "Sell Yourself without Selling Out: Making It as an Artist in the Digital Age," at Etsy's headquarters in Dumbo.In a world where digital rules, how can you take your creative project and do something with it? If you call yourself an artist (and we're all artists in our own right) - what are the best ways to make the digital landscape your friend? Join NY Creative Interns and Etsy to hear a panel of artists share insight and discuss how even the most traditional art forms can have a place in the digital age.

With the end of the term just a month away, fledgling creatives—art students or otherwise—certainly have something to gain from the panel, not least for the invaluable opportunity to network with peers and potential employers.
