How do artists and art organizations acquire funding to progress? How do we support our art professional practice? With the understanding that different art practices utilize a variety of business concepts, how do artists procure funds for advancement of their creative endeavors? Many art projects are large scale, long term, require travel and research. How can artists with great ideas communicate their goals and their need to develop in-depth processes? How can artists be aided with the understanding of business concepts and relationships? This session is an open call for proposals/panelists that can share the business side of art. Any pertinent and helpful information on: grants, non-profits, foundations, sponsors, fund-raising, in-kind donations, networking, crowd funding, resources, residencies, artist communities, gallery representation and any other experiences that would allow the arts to thrive are welcome to be shared.
