The NYSCA/NYFA Artist as Entrepreneur Boot Camp is a series of professional development programs for the arts communities in New York State conducted over a three-year period. The latest installment, an intensive, multi-day professional development opportunity that delves into the fundamental principles of sustainability in the arts, will be presented by Cattaraugus County Arts Council (CCAC) June 1-4 in Olean, NY.
Topics to be featured include strategic planning, finance, law, marketing, and fundraising. Additional material will be drawn from NYFA’s popular textbook The Profitable Artist (Allworth Press, 2011). The Boot Camp’s structure is a blend of formal lectures, breakout groups, and one-on-one meetings. Participants work through a flexible and dynamic “action plan” that provides a blueprint for their future project, career, and business goals. All programs are offered free-of-charge to participants.
Artists interested in attending are required to apply, and participants are selected by a panel review process. Artists of all disciplines and career stages are encouraged to apply. Click here to apply.
This program is made possible through New York State Council on the Arts, State & Local Partnerships with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. The event is presented by the Cattaraugus County Arts Council in conjunction with local co-sponsors Jamestown Community College and Olean Business Development Corporation.
