ATTENTION RESIDENTS OF NEW YORK CITY:
The New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) is now accepting applications for the “Artist as Entrepreneur” Boot Camp. Applications are due on April 26 and classes begin June 12, 2010. The Boot Camp will provide artists working in all disciplines (literary, media, performing and visual) with the business skills they need to further their artistic careers. There is no charge for participation. Please share this information freely with your community of artists.
The Boot Camp begins on June 12 and will take place over 5 day-long sessions at NYFA’s office at 20 Jay Street in DUMBO. Participating artists can expect the sessions to spark goals and help to define concrete steps to building a business plan that can lead to financial security. Approximately 50 artists will be accepted into the program which will include both group work and individualized training.
The Boot Camp is open to artists and members of creative teams working all disciplines. They must be residents of New York City and have internet access.
Classes will take place from 10:00 am – 5:00 pm on June 12, 19, 26, July 10 and 17.
The application is due on April 26 and is currently available on NYFA’s website here. For questions, please contact Peter Cobb at firstname.lastname@example.org or Felicity Hogan at Clearning@nyfa.org.
NYFA has a long history of providing professional development training to artists and was selected to administer this program by the New York City Economic Development Corporation (EDC) after a rigorous RFP (Request for Proposals) process.
