The program is designed to support both recent graduates as well as students who have been out of school for several years who are seeking the skills needed to start, sustain, and/or grow an arts-related business. The program is designed primarily for visual artists, design professionals, architects, illustrators, musicians, actors, writers, crafts persons, performing artists, and supporters of the arts; but it is open to all students who feel that this training and our program structure will benefit them. Successful candidates for this professional development program will have:
- A strong entrepreneurial spirit;
- A clear interest in the distribution of creative products;
- A genuine curiosity about the nature of and nexus between the arts and commerce;
- An ability to commit to an intensive learning experience.
