Broward Cultural Division, The Community Partnership for Arts and Culture (CPAC) and ArtServe announce the return of the very successful Artist as an Entrepreneur Institute (AEI). Artists of all disciplines are encouraged to attend, including but not limited to sculptors, illustrators, metalworkers, writers, dancers, jewelers, musicians, performance artists, media/filmmakers, photographers, designers and all interdisciplinary artists. Artists residing in any county are invited and welcome to attend.

AEI is a course of study designed to assist individual artists by cultivating and advancing their business skills, and helping them to strengthen their operating infrastructure and expand their business. To date, more than 500 South Florida artists have graduated from the Institute, and many with exceptional success stories that follow.

Registrants will receive an AEI course book; an indispensable resource for artists. Developed by CPAC, the course book features exercises and readings to prepare for each session, and is tailored to the specific needs of artist entrepreneurs.

Designed to help artists operate in the marketplace more successfully, the AEI course curriculum covers all aspects of developing an artistic business. It helps identify and develop a personal brand, develop strategies for communicating with target markets, raise capital and identify a variety of tools for protecting one’s work legally. The curriculum offers critical support, enabling artists to contribute to strengthening the vitality of the larger urban arts and culture sector. Sessions include a mix of lectures, panels, group discussions and practical exercises.

The Business Plan Clinic’s topics, Working Effectively with Lenders and Developing a Brand, will guide 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.

View the Artist as an Entrepreneur webpage for more information about the course and its history, and read news coverage from past years.
