Artist as an Entrepreneur Institute Returns to South Florida
The Artist as an Entrepreneur Institute (AEI) will be presented on four Saturdays in June 2012, at ArtServe, Inc., 1350 East Sunrise Blvd. in Fort Lauderdale.
Presented by the Broward Cultural Division, the AEI is a course of study designed to assist artists of all disciplines (visual, musicians, writers, media, theater, performing arts) by cultivating and advancing their business skills, by strengthening their operating infrastructure and expanding their businesses. The course has been refreshed this year with a new format, and new modules. To date, 300 South Florida artists have graduated from the Institute. AEI will be offered as 20 classes convening during full-day sessions (9:00 am – 6:00 pm) on June 2, 9, 16, 2012 and a Business Plan Clinic and Workshop on June 23, 2012 (9:00 am – 2:00 pm).
The Business Plan Clinic guides participants through preparation of a simple business plan, an essential tool for any artist. In addition, participants will learn how to work effectively with lenders to obtain financial support through the Artist Micro Credit Program, a community-based revolving loan program, designed to assist Broward-based practicing, professional and emerging artists.
Participation costs $100 and includes light refreshments and free parking. Click HERE to register online or contact Adriane Clarke, at 954-357-7530 for more information.
The AEI is made possible by the collaboration of Broward Cultural Division, The Community Partnership for Arts and Culture (CPAP) and Artserve. Inc.
