Artist INC LIVE is a training seminar designed to address
the specific professional and entrepreneurial challenges that artists of all
disciplines face in their practices. Artists learn and grow together
through artist facilitator mentoring, small group activities, large group
discussions, multi-media lectures and a remarkable opportunity for networking
with other artists.
Approximately 25 artists will be selected through a
competitive application process to engage in an eight-week training seminar led
by a team of five trained peer facilitators.
The application selection process takes into consideration
quality of work, readiness for the program, and diversity of the seminar
cohort. The panelists will be asked to consider the applications through
the lens of equity. Great care is taken to ensure diversity and inclusion in
all its definitions including demographics (gender, age, and ethnicity) and
artistic discipline (including visual, performing, literary, and film).
Topics for the 8-week sessions are:
Your Map: Strategic Planning and Goal Setting
Your Story: Strategic Communications and Building a Personal Brand
Your Public: Writing About Your Work
Your Money: Budgets and Financial Planning
Your Value: How to Fund Your Practice
Your Plan: Artist as Solopreneur
Your Presence: Public Speaking and Online Presence
Your Work: Sharing your Work with the Public
