Artist INC Live Kansas City - Fall 2021
Artist INC is a cutting edge training seminar that addresses the specific business needs and challenges artists of all disciplines face every day. Limited to 25 participants per session, artists gather for one night a week for eight weeks to learn business skills specific to their art practice and apply those skills cooperatively with their peers. Using an innovative class design, artists learn and grow together through artist facilitator mentoring, small group application activities, as well as large group discussion and multi-media lecture. Now in its twelfth year, the Artist INC workshop has been completed by more than 1,500 regional artists. Artist INC Kansas City is a program of Mid-America Arts Alliance and is supported by the National Endowment for the Arts and individuals throughout Arkansas, Kansas, Iowa, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Texas.
