Are you passionate about artist entrepreneurship?
Are you ready for creative community development ?
Do you want to shape creative responses to pressing issues?
Do you see the potential for artists & communities working together?
Springboard for the Arts has a training for that.
In the summer of 2017, Springboard for the Arts piloted the first Train-the-Trainer Intensives for the Work of Art: Business Skills for Artists programming, and for our artist-led community development models. 28 attendees from Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Michigan, Ohio, West Virginia, North Carolina, Virginia, and Arizona came to Saint Paul, MN, to take part, learn, and share over the course of the week-long event, and we have since seen materials adapted and replicated, and new programming begun.
With the support of the Bush Foundation, the Surdna Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts, we are delighted to announce our 2018 National Training Opportunities, with expanded community development offerings, and rural and urban opportunities to participate.
