About the Art-Business Conference
Art is a Business, and Artists Should Run It
Our conferences offer artists and art-industry leaders an unparalleled opportunity to join together for mutual success. The three-day event kicks off with a mini-accelerator program for artists—intensive business training coupled with the chance to build a powerful network of allies. On the third day, artists are joined by decision-makers and funders for a spirited discussion on the local arts ecosystem and how it can be reimagined for the benefit of all. The conference concludes with the development of specific strategies and action plans to achieve the participants’ shared goals.
"I want to build a sustainable business in art, and I'm learning a lot to give structure to the way I think about that."
"The content was so rich. There is so much to tap into. I feel overwhelmed in a good way."
"I'm at this forum because I'm an emerging artist. I have the products but I don't know what to do with the products..."
"This feels like I found my tribe. These folks are speaking my language. This is what I want to know about."
