Teach, Write, Guide, Be Interviewed
Provide an Interview
Your Business Expertise & Insights for Working Artists
Feature your insights and expertise. We interview business and art industry professionals, working artists, art collectors, and arts-organization leaders for our audience of working artists who want insights and information on how to thrive at the business of art. Interviews appear as either a written expert column or as a podcast episode in the syndicated Thriving Artist Podcast (format is subject to editor/producer need and content goals).
Facilitate a Workshop
Business Education for Working Artists
Impart your expertise to others. Facilitators bring subject matter expertise to our graduate fellowship program for working artists who want to succeed as artist-entrepreneurs–The Business Accelerator Program. A teaching commitment can be as little as a workshop and followup lab or participating for a full quarter, semester, or year. We welcome expertise in capitalization, financial management, contract and copyright, customer acquisition and negotiation, business strategy, and plotting a career trajectory.
Strengthen a Team
Project Leadership To Working Artists
Ensure the success of an eager group of graduate Fellows. PPMs (Personal Project Managers) help a team of 3-5 people succeed at their goals through regular group accountability calls, encouraging and midwifing collaboration with peers, and providing individualized guidance for methodically plotting and achieving individual professional project goals. It's project management at an individual professional level with a small group.
Write an Article or Column
Business Journalism Aimed at Working Artists
Resort to the written word. Propose an article or regular/recurring column aimed at providing some form of entrepreneurial insight or providing business expertise to working artists. It can be general or topical (e.g. financial, customer acquisition). Your idea(s) can range from creative to delightfully mundane (the audience needs the mundane). Read our guidelines of course, and send us your idea(s) with a bio and links to your social-media.
