Artist INC Express is a 3-day intensive workshop created to address the specific business needs and challenges artists of all disciplines face every day.
Building upon Artist INC’s experience working with hundreds of artists in the Midwest region through its core Artist INC Live seminar, Artist INC Express was designed to focus participants on learning the most essential skills in the shortest amount of time.
Mid-America Arts Alliance, in partnership with the Arkansas Arts Council, will host a workshop dedicated to bringing student artists and young creatives together statewide to build professional development skills. Led by professional artist facilitators, the workshop is highly interactive and includes activities and discussions focused on goal setting, writing about your work, and building a personal brand – the building blocks for a sustainable art practice and a successful arts business. Artist INC Express immediately activates a network of artists in their community leading to additional peer to peer resource sharing and support long after the workshop concludes.
The workshop is free and open to all Arkansas student artists and recent grads (18+ years old) who are interested in a career in the creative industry and/or are pursuing a degree in the arts. Registration is required.
