The Art of Managing Your Career Fall 2017 is now open for online applications! The Course is designed to address the need for business training for anyone with an existing arts practice including actors, craftspeople, dancers, filmmakers, musicians, new media content creators, visual artists, writers and the like. If you are a self-employed artist, or looking to increase the portion of your employment derived from your art, then this course is for you!

The workshop gives working artists the confidence and knowledge to successfully manage their careers or businesses in the cultural sector. The workshop material has been designed at a college/university level and is applicable to artists from all disciplines.

The workshop begins by exploring the attitudes and behaviours that may make it difficult for artists to recognize their transferable skills. It then builds components of a business plan and other self-promotion tools. A peer learning network will be established to support the participants once the workshop has been completed.

By the end of this course, you will have developed an extensive business plan, a marketing plan, and have a template for managing your finances, all while pursuing your artistic dreams!

To register for this course, please fill in the online application form at before August 31, 2017.
Applicants will be notified about results by the first week of September 2017.
