Popup 101 workshop graphic


Learn what makes a pop-up successful, how to strategize a pop-up for your business, and where you should pop-up. We will cover the difference between short term and a permanent leases, what documents you will need, what costs to consider, how marketing a pop-up is different, and what financial resources to consider. Additionally, we will provide templates and an application to get you started for a successful pop-up.


Strategic Planning

STRATEGIC ACTION PLANNING for Creative Enterprises

Learn how to ensure the long term health of your career, organization, or enterprise. This four class series will help you articulate a clear and ambitious vision for the future, then create a map to make it a reality.

We will pay special attention to what it means to be an artist in business.
