ArtSpark is dedicated to shifting the arts ecosystem where artists live and work. The current arts ecosystem is confusing, frustrating, fragmented and full of inefficiencies. ArtSpark envisions a realigned arts ecosystem that minimizes the burden of building and managing the business of being an artist so artists can remain true to their creative practice and art. To that end, ArtSpark offers workshops and technical assistance to artists, artisans, designers, makers and creative entrepreneurs focused on business development (Artist Business Canvas workshops), communications (including social media), fundraising, marketing and branding, audience development and community engagement. ArtSpark also connects artists (and designers, makers, etc.) to creativity-friendly business professionals and online resources in their communities.
