Springboard for the Arts offers consultations for individual artists and groups. In a consultation, our Artist Career Consultants get to know you and your work, help you set goals, and develop realistic strategies to help you reach those goals. Career Consultation FAQ.
If you’d like to meet with a specific consultant, you can take a look at a complete list, with bio.s and areas of specialization, of our Artist Career Consultants.
Our consultations are priced at suggested fees of between $0 to $75/hr. (for Minnesota artists). This means we are asking you to make an honest evaluation of what payment is within your ability. The actual administrative cost of a consultation is higher than the rates on this scale, so we encourage you to pay at the highest level within your means, as it allows us to offer lower rates to those who need it. If you do not live in Minnesota, please read the Consultation FAQ.
What to expect after you submit the Consultation Request form and make your online payment: a) You should immediately receive an email notification confirming that the form was successfully submitted; b) Then, one of our Artist Career Consultants will contact you via email, typically within three business days, to schedule a date and time for your consultation, which are usually held at Springboard for the Arts during normal business hours.
We’re excited to announce that we are partnering with Hennepin County by participating in Elevate Business HC, a new initiative that connects small and mid-size business owners to no-cost advising and consulting services, practical business resources in Hennepin County. If your arts practice is based in Hennepin County Elevate HC will cover the cost of your consultation!
