Wednesday, July 24 workshop will provide artists and creative individuals with an interactive way to work on their business model.

New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) is pleased to offer “The Creative Entrepreneur” Program, a one-day workshop designed to provide artists and creative individuals access to entrepreneurial tools for their practices and arts businesses.

Geared towards nurturing a network and community amongst participants, the program offers interactive sessions covering a broad range of topics that artists and creative entrepreneurs need to consider when developing their business models. Touching upon key principles of sustainability in topics such as strategic planning, fundraising, and marketing, participants will be guided through the Business Model Canvas, a flexible and dynamic planning document that will provide a blueprint for their future goals. The structure is a blend of formal lectures and breakout groups. In addition to support from NYFA, guest experts will provide insights into key elements of sustainability through marketing and fundraising sessions to further support participants’ goals.

If you are considering starting or refining an arts enterprise—of any size or form—this one-day program will provide an interactive way for you to work on your business model. This approach is also helpful for visually-minded thinkers, as the strategy for your arts business or practice can be laid out on one page.
