NoMAA NYSCA/NYFA Artist as Entrepreneur Boot Camp Program
New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA), in partnership with the New York State Council on the Arts’ State and Local Partnerships program, is pleased to announce the second year of the NYSCA/NYFA Artist as Entrepreneur Boot Camp, a series of professional development programs for the arts communities in New York State conducted over a three-year period.
NoMAA presents the Artist as Entrepreneur Boot Camp, an intensive, multi-day professional development opportunity that delves into the fundamental principles of sustainability in the arts.
Topics to be featured include strategic planning, finance, law, marketing, and fundraising. Additional material will be drawn from NYFA’s popular textbook, “The Profitable Artist” (Allworth Press, 2011).
The Boot Camp’s structure is a blend of formal lectures, breakout groups, and one-on-one meetings. Participants work through a flexible and dynamic “action plan” that provides a blueprint for their future project, career, and business goals.
There is no charge to participate in the Artist as Entrepreneur Program. Artists interested in attending are required to apply, and participants are selected by a panel review process. Artists of all disciplines and career stages are encouraged to apply.
All programs are offered free-of-charge to participants.
