Artists in Business provides opportunities and support to visual artists and designer-makers through business mentoring, exhibitions and markets.
Why would artists need to know about business? Surely our role is to create beautiful or challenging objects and not "dirty" ourselves with marketing, selling and promotion.
Well, unless you are successful enough to have an agent and accountant or you are happy enough to live in a garret creating art for YOU then artists need to know about the business of art.
Artists in Business is aimed at all self employed artists and artisans whether you work from your kitchen table, social network seller, sell via a website, own a B and M shop, just completed your art education, returning to the arts after a break or have been selling your work for a lifetime.
We offer support for artists who are starting up in business as well as working in community arts and arts markets. Contact us at email@example.com
