Christopher R. Mihm is the writer, director, and producer of the films of the "Mihmiverse," a series of award-winning, loosely interlinked feature-length films which pay homage to 1950s-era "drive-in cinema." Mr. Mihm will be joining us at Dulucon to show his 2013 film, "The Giant Spider," and talk about how he's made a career out of producing cheesy low-budget monster movies in Minnesota!

Through public art collaborations across Minnesota, Moira Villiard is a multidisciplinary artist with a mixed Indigenous and settler heritage who uses art to uplift underrepresented narratives, explore the nuance of society’s historical community intersections, and promote community healing spaces. In this panel, Moira Villiard will dismantle the myth of the starving artist and share tips and resources on how to make a living off of your creativity (both as a side hustle and a career), and will also share resources for funding your creative passions. She will also share her experience as a young artist who reached mid-career status in her early 20's, including advice on obstacles, how to avoid exploitation, and how to have meaningful community impact through art or hobbies.
