Conversations: discussing the Nexus of the Arts and Entrepreneurship

Striking the balance between creativity and business is often a challenge for the average artist hoping to be more than a hobbyist. In some cases, they can’t be bothered. In others, they simply don’t have the tools, or don’t think they have the tools. Truth is, artists have more resources than they realise. What is needed is practical steps and know-how.

About the conversation

On Tuesday, April 18, 2017 Kei Dubb will be hosting the knowledge at the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts in the seminar room as the creative community gathers for the Art is Risky Business: the Nexus of the Arts and Entrepreneurship. Conceptualised by the talented Laurice Griffiths, the seminar will touch on three main areas including developing the entrepreneurial mindset, identity branding, and pricing design. These three focus areas each have key variables that come together to help creatives make better, more profitable, business decisions. Even better is helping them to do so without compromising their art or their creative process. In fact, by carefully applying the variables highlighted in this seminar, creatives will be able to create and distribute/deliver their art in a more efficient manner and at a higher quality, as they will have the framework necessary.
