Are you an artist seeking to make a living from your creativity and
talent, but don’t know how?

This workshop is the starting point for artists who are doing what they love but not quite making a living yet. We’ll outline the services and resources available to you at YES and from other arts organizations in the community, and touch upon key things to consider in building a career or business in the arts.

Topics include: getting to know your industry, marketing/promotion,
developing relationships with stakeholders, understanding the funding
landscape, and essential grant-writing tips.

During the workshop, there will be ample time for a one-on-one consultation with a dedicated artist coach who will help you identify what services would best suit your needs as an artist and entrepreneur.
