Groundbreaking Insights on Creative Professionals

Getting Down to Business – April 2018 newsletter

This Month at CHF

April was a tremendous month for CHF, as we engaged with working artists from coast to coast—talking “Mightier Marketing” at Artexpo New York, women in the arts at stARTup Art Fair San Francisco, and career acceleration at our Art Business Summit in Santa Fe. CHF is leading the charge in entrepreneurial education for artists, and these boots-on-the-ground events are a key part of our approach, complementing the expertise and training we provide virtually, and bringing artists together to collaborate. Join us at our next art business summit, in Dallas, on September 8th and 9th!

Funding Your Art Business: This month on our podcast, Alice Loy, the co-founder and CEO of Creative Startups, takes us on a deep dive into entrepreneurship for creative professionals, offering a bird’s-eye view of the state of the creative economy and sharing her practical insights on starting a business from square one. Listen here.
