  • 2. Mission Statement Polymath is a journal dedicated to the professional development of the artist/ musician/filmmaker/author through informative columns featuring successful artists, scientists & business people and highlighting art, music, film & literature done well. To be an artist, one must be a consummate human being. The interplay of art and philosophy, language, sound and science is undeniably intrinsic to the human condition. This is where Polymath excels. Polymath is one part literary and art journal, one part artist & business development journal and one part science. We as artists need to ground ourselves in our natural world and scientific discoveries are a massive part of that grounding. Dear Reader, If you’re reading this you’re an artist and an investor.Hopefullyboth.Thankyou.Yourservice to the artistic community is what turns lines, dots and dashes of black on a white page into literary gold. It’s what brings a person to tears while their eyes cross a painting or photograph. It’s what makes a film remembered for years to come. Simply put, Polymath is here to remind us that art, music, film and literature cannot stand alone. Each area of expertise has its own guidelinesandexperience,butisinterdependent. By strengthening these interdependencies and helping artists develop as multi disciplinarians, we plan to enhance the Art Scene as a whole. No work of art can be sustained without audience. An audience comes through networking, advertising, being seen: it comes throughbusiness.Bydeferringtoknowledgeable and successful artists, musicians, filmmakers, professors and authors we are able to show the emerging arts scene how the business of the arts works. That combination of showcase and professional development makes Polymath a future rockstar in the West Coast Arts Scene.

  • 3. Goals & Objectives To give successful professionals an avenue to share their advice on their professions. To showcase and highlight fine arts. To advertize organizations and companies the artistic, musical, filmmaking and literary communities need to know about. To enhance the experience of West Coast artists. To give a platform for art as business. To inspect & dialogue about the interplay between art and science. To enhance the mind and inspire multi disciplinarianism in the arts. To publish a print and digital journal with multimedia content. The Polymath Brand Polymath is the culmination of Vraeyda Literary’s mandate of publishing speculative fiction, creative nonfiction and creating cross platform arts content.

Polymath is for the people who aren’t content with being one thing. It’s about Developing the Craft, whether that craft is art, the written word, music, film or daily living. Polymath aims to develop through example and regular columns with insider information, how-to’s, professional skills & business sense.
