Art as Business as Art

I pay close attention to each of my clients’ needs and challenges and tailor my work to move them forward, employing creativity, a problem-solving imagination, and a rich network of thought leaders to arrive at results. 
To do this I activate:
My creativity, insight, and vision 
My research and development experience 
My access to thought leaders and knowledge workers
I provide problem-solving solutions to individuals and organizations based on decades of experience in the arts and culture sector, in theory and in practice. My sprawling network of arts and culture peers provides me with up-to-the-minute developments in innovation and management practice, media and communications, public relations, program design, fundraising and more. These leaders and industry trailblazers are at the forefront of creative entrepreneurship and administration, holding key positions at publishing houses, media companies, business consultancies, arts nonprofits, foundations, tech companies, museums and more.
I share news about my projects via my newsletter (2,000+ subscribers) and social media channels, which I’ve developed for over ten years, engaging thousands around the world weekly.

“Charlie Vazquez graciously volunteered his time and talent as a writer with an original story for our benefit anthology Ricanstruction: Reminiscing and Rebuilding Puerto Rico. With his help we’ve raised over $150,000 in disaster relief funds for our grants program, which will distribute awards to nine grassroots organizations in Puerto Rico in 2018.”
