This training is designed for artists, arts leaders, and arts educators who want to lead the Work of Art: Business Skills for Artists curriculum in their community or classes. The training will include deep dives on the curriculum materials, exploration of pedagogy, and strategies for including Work of Art materials into existing programming, or how to develop new programs based on Work of Art. The Work of Art training is ideal for Arts Council staff interested in offering professional development and business skills training to artists in their community; professors and teachers interested in including practical business skills in their class curricula; and individual artists with high capacity to organize and teach in their community.
We will offer 10 full scholarships to the training, covering the cost of training and with a $500 travel and lodging stipend, to be paid on the first day of training. Scholarships will be weighted toward artists, organizers, or administrators who identify as BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color), or Native, or a member of a disability community, living with mental illness, or of the deaf community, or queer or trans. Scholarship applications are due Friday, May 24, 2019, and recipients will be informed by Friday, May 31, 2019.
