Business of Art Office Hour

with Allison Wyper

In this monthly, 1-hour Zoom meeting, CCI's Artists Knowledge Manager and special guests will answer your questions about your art business. We will also lean on the collective knowledge of the group, with opportunities to workshop the challenges you are facing, and share our stories and experiences.

Questions are to be submitted in advance, and topics may include:

  • goal setting & planning;
  • identifying & connecting with customers;
  • contracts & pricing;
  • money management;
  • how to earn income and sustain your practice.
This informal group coaching opportunity is ideal for former participants of CCI's Business of Art Entrepreneurial Training Program, or any artist, creative, or culture worker who is actively cultivating a sustainable business.
Space is limited to 20 artists.
