Apply Now | NYSCA/NYFA Artist as Entrepreneur Boot Camp Upcoming Deadlines

Don’t miss out on applying for these free New York professional development programs in Rochester, Olean, and Troy.

New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA), in partnership with the New York State Council on the Arts’ State & Local Partnerships program, is pleased to announce the second year of the NYSCA/NYFA Artist as Entrepreneur Boot Camp, a series of professional development programs for the arts communities in New York State conducted over a three-year period. The latest installment, an intensive, multi-day professional development opportunity that delves into the fundamental principles of sustainability in the arts, will be presented by three organizations across New York State: The Flower City Arts Center, Cattaraugus County Arts Council (CCAC), and The Arts Center of the Capital Region.

Topics to be featured include strategic planning, finance, law, marketing, and fundraising. Additional material will be drawn from NYFA’s popular textbook The Profitable Artist (Allworth Press, 2011). The Boot Camp’s structure is a blend of formal lectures, breakout groups, and one-on-one meetings. Participants work through a flexible and dynamic “action plan” that provides a blueprint for their future project, career, and business goals.

Artists living and working in New York State in all disciplines and career stages, including students, are invited to apply.

All programs are offered free-of-charge to participants.
