Jump Start Your Art & Financing Options

Are you an artist seeking to make a living from your creativity and talent, but don’t know how? Many artists want to live off their art - but where do you start? This orientation session will outline the support services that are available to artists through YES and other arts organizations, and give an overview on how you can finance your work. We’ll touch upon key things to consider when building a career or business in the arts - from understanding the funding landscape, to developing relationships with key stakeholders, as well as marketing and essential grant-writing tips - so you can get started today. After these workshops there will be an opportunity to meet one-on-one with a YES Artist Coach for 20 minutes to get answers to your questions and determine your individualized service plan.
