Entrepreneurship in the Arts
A Buffalo State Certificate Program for Creative Artists

Presented by
The School of Arts and Humanities
the Small Business Development Center
the Continuing and Professional Studies Office and the Burchfield Penney Art Center

Five intensive workshops in entrepreneurship will provide essential knowledge for creating and operating your own arts enterprise. Learn how to develop your creative business in the studio arts, graphic and digital design, animation, film, music performance, audio technology, theater, dance, creative writing, communication, and other creative endeavors.

Offered over five consecutive Thursday evenings at the Burchfield Penney Art Center, the workshops will inform you about understanding your market; selling locally, nationally, and on the WEB; how to prepare a guiding plan; and the role of finance in your business.

Presenters include experts in strategic planning, taxation and legal requirements, finance and insurance, trademark and copyright law, and e-commerce and marketing. The final session will feature a panel of artistic entrepreneurs who earn a living from their creative enterprises.

Space is limited to 30 registrants. Discounts are available for Buffalo State students and alumni. This professional development program is offered as a package of five sessions. Sessions are not available individually.
