2022 Professional Craft Artist Virtual Business Summit

April 8, All-day Workshops from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM

Experience a one-day conference specifically designed to address the needs and challenges faced by current and prospective craft artist business owners. Arts based businesses are unique ventures and require special business planning methods.

This event focuses on training the "maker" – an artist or a crafter – on how to position your business for more profit… through more sales and more customers.

With over 650,000 businesses involved in the creation or distribution of the arts, the creative industry employs more than 3.48 million people. Arts businesses and the creative people they employ stimulate innovation, strengthen competitiveness in the marketplace, and play an important role in building and sustaining economic vibrancy.

There are many pieces and parts to having a successful career that go beyond just being a talented artist. The complexities of your business are not always managed on a spreadsheet, and often you don't have the knowledge to handle certain situations or make the best decisions.

Whether you have been in business for years or are just getting started, this online event offers everyone a place to gain tools to increase your chance of having a successful creative business!
