Creative Entrepreneur Program 

4 Openings


Made in Trenton: Creative Entrepreneur Program is a program to help artists advance to the next step in their work and aims to build bridges between the arts sector, the local community and local businesses. During the program ten artists/ arts managers come together twice a month and complete five projects in a five month time period.

Each program participant will complete three personal projects (an update to a resume or website, a call to get their work presented or funded, a creative project, etc.), one collaborative project with someone outside of the group, and a community based project with ten people in a specific community (i.e. second graders, those hard of hearing, ethnic-based, senior citizens, teens, electricians etc.).

At each session, program participants will share progress on their projects and will learn directly from arts business experts who will lead sessions on a variety of arts business topics including hiring and motivating staff, resource assessment, fundraising, relationship building, pricing, contracts and negotiation, strategic planning etc.

At the end of the five-month time frame projects will be presented at both arts and social venues as well as local businesses.

Call for Artists - The Texas Tech University School of Art

Deadline March 24: Artists can get discouraged and their art-making interrupted by practicalities like deadlines, proper studio space, available resources, technology and the biggest heartbreak of all; not enough money.

What if that artist had financial backing, equipment, materials, manpower and experienced technicians ready to take direction and create their vision? What if that artist's work wasn't limited by the fact that they live on the planet, Earth, in the year 2014 and are subjected to physical laws?
