January 12th is the Deadline for this Opportunity for Artists!
Breaking Into Business Workshop In Windsor
It’s back! The Council’s “Breaking into Business” program premiered earlier this year to wide acclaim. The two-day workshop offers business and marketing planning specifically tailored to the needs of artists. It is open to Vermont artists of all disciplines and facilitated by Maren Brown and Dee Boyle Clapp from the Arts Extension Service at UMass Amherst. Participants in last year’s sessions were very enthusiastic about their experience.
“The fact that this workshop was presented by artists for artists meant that none of us felt out of our element,” said Caitlin Christiana of Springfield. “This is exactly the sort of community-building experience that we artists are in need of.”
Funding for this year’s workshops has been provided by Ernst & Young.
Applications are NOW OPEN for workshops on February 12-13 at the Windsor Welcome Center, Windsor, VT. (Deadline to apply: January 12, 2011) http://www.vermontartscouncil.org/ProgramsInitiatives/BreakingintoBusinessWorkshops/tabid/189/Default.aspx BU to find out more or to apply today.
The Windsor Welcome Center is wheel chair accessible. Questions regarding accessibility should be addressed to Michele Bailey, 504/ADA Coordinator: 802-828-3294 (voice). Relay calls welcome.
