Are you an artist seeking to make a living from your creativity and talent, but don’t know how? This orientation session outlines the support services available to artists through YES and other arts organizations, and touches upon key things to consider in building a career or business in the arts. Topics include: getting to know your industry, marketing/ promotion, governance, developing relationships with key stakeholders, understanding the funding landscape and essential grant-writing tips. After the workshop, there will be the opportunity for a one-on-one consultation session to establish the YES resources that best suit your needs.
The Artists’ Program is open to artists of all ages and artistic disciplines, and offers a range of services to help artists develop the tools, skills and strategies to turn their artistic passion into an economically viable profession. To best meet the diverse and particular needs of our artist clients, this program works closely with our Entrepreneurship and Job Search departments, which offer many workshops and other services pertinent to artists.
If it is your first time visiting YES, please arrive at least 15 minutes before the workshop.
