Are you an artist seeking to make a living from your creativity and talent, but don’t know how?
This workshop is the starting point for artists who are doing what they love but not quite making a living yet. We’ll outline the services and resources available to you at YES and from other arts organizations in the community, and touch upon key things to consider in building a career or business in the arts.
Topics include: getting to know your industry, marketing/promotion, developing relationships with stakeholders, understanding the funding landscape and essential grant-writing tips.
During the workshop, there will be ample time for a one-on-one consultation with a dedicated artist coach who will help you identify what services would best suit your needs as an artist and entrepreneur.
15-Minute One-on-One Artist Consult
This free 15-minute session with the YES Artist Coach offers new clients an opportunity to discover the YES services that will best meet your needs and existing clients an opportunity to address one or two small issues related to your creative practice or business. Available by appointment only, over the phone or online. If you wish to continue receiving artist coaching services, you’ll be required to open a client file.
