Our two-day program is designed for artists at any stage of entrepreneurship by providing knowledge, tools, and confidence to navigate professional careers. Our values-based education recognizes the business of art and expression as cultural leadership, helping artists actualize their vision of success.
Our program also certifies participants as Native Arts Professional Development trainers, suitable for financial and non-profit professionals looking to work with artists, as well as artists aspiring to become mentors. The program offers expertise to artists interested in starting or growing a business.
Our trainers come from all over the country and represent professional artists and entrepreneurs, including musicians, visual artists, business owners, and load officers. They are dedicated to supporting an Indigenous Arts Ecology that fosters thriving artists, communities, and cultures.
