BUSINESS NUTS AND BOLTS for PERFORMING ARTISTS
Apply to participate in a free two-day crash course for performing artists on May 23-24 in Boston.

Participants will be equipped with tools that can be implemented right away, including the fun and effective Business Model Canvas, while having the business-speak explained from an arts-based perspective.
Topics include business models, marketing, public relations, fundraising, fiscal sponsorship, insurance, grant writing, self-producing your work, touring your work regionally and nationally, working with presenting organizations/curators, helpful arts advocates/allies/networks, and life budgeting and financial literacy.
