Unfettering Artists' Productivity and Impact
Upcoming Workshops


Collective & Cooperative Business Models

How do you organize and execute a collaborative business plan? What are the steps that artists and cultural producers need to know about? Crafting a plan and generating funds for cooperative business plans can be mystifying. Fortunately, Los Angeles has a rich history of artist based and run collectives and cooperatives to learn from! This workshop will provide examples of past and current long and short term projects, houses, cooperative spaces, businesses and pop-ups. 


The Business of Art

Our annual 8-week business training for artists in Los Angeles is now on the calendar. Save the dates!


Know Your Rights

Many artists are driven to use their artworks, actions and voices to defend their beliefs and lifestyles. Whether protesting with a group, performing acts of civil disobedience, or using the arts to communicate, it is critical that artists understand their rights. In this workshop, representatives from the National Lawyers Guild will help participants understand their rights when performing acts of civil disobedience and protest.
