Business Entities for Creative Entrepreneurs

B-Corps, (c)(3)s, LLCs and more... Artists and creative entrepreneurs have a host of options these days when it comes to selecting a business entity, but many may not be aware of some less traditional options such as cooperatives, fiscal sponsorship, unincorporated associations, and benefit corporations. Join Casey Summar for a workshop on how to choose the right business entity for your artistic practice.

Telling Your Story

Award-winning storyteller Christopher Rivas leads this workshop for artists, creative entrepreneurs, and anyone who wants to feel empowered to tell their personal story (or the story of their company or project) in an authentic way, for customers, clients, donors, investors, funders, family, or friends. 


Activating Artists: Civic Engagement Through Your Art

"Bureaucracy artist" Camilo Cruz and poet/facilitator Elisabeth Nails lead this free workshop for artists who wish to use their creative practice in service of social and criminal justice. Attendees will learn about current alternative sentencing options, and weigh in on how the City of Los Angeles might utilize art as a viable tool for prosecutorial innovation via alternative sentencing, crime prevention, and restorative justice.
