Event description

Description

Artists often come upon their practice through a passion for making. But what happens when our practice becomes a business? By nature, artists are often self-employed but often lack the tools to approach their practice as a business. As artists and creatives, how can we consider the customer’s point of view without compromising our mission and values? This workshop is for new and existing arts entrepreneurs looking to start or grow their practice. Attendees will leave with the tools to develop a start-up plan and consider a variety of possible business models. Participants will also learn about business entity formation and trademarks. The class will be led by Kenny Smilovitch, Director of the JVS Chicago Duman Entrepreneurship Center, and lecturer at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and Cliff Helm, a Chicago area attorney, pro-bono advocate through The Law Project.
