Program to be offered on Wednesday, August 22 at NYFA in Brooklyn.

The New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) is pleased to offer an opportunity for artists in all disciplines to participate in our Artist as Entrepreneur Boot Camp program, established in 2010. The one-day program will be offered on August 22, and will take place at the NYFA Office in Brooklyn.

The Artist As Entrepreneur Boot Camp
offers the fundamental principles of sustainability—and ultimately profitability—in the arts. This includes topics such as strategic planning, finance, and marketing, with additional material drawn from NYFA’s popular textbook, The Profitable Artist (Allworth Press, 2011). The Boot Camp’s structure is a blend of formal lectures and breakout groups. Participants work through a flexible and dynamic “action plan” and a business model canvas, which provide a blueprint for your practice or specific projects.

Connect with other artists as you build the business skills essential to supporting your creative career.
