Artists: I keep harping about professional development and won’t stop, certainly not without sharing this incredible opportunity. OK, so it’s a lottery, and it’s one more application you might get rejected from. So what? It’s free and normally would cost a LOT—and be worth every penny—so apply yo’self!
The Artists Summer Institute (ASI), a free five-day professional development intensive, returns May 9-13! Offered through a partnership between Creative Capital and Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (LMCC), ASI is open to 55 New York City artists working in the fields of visual, media, performing and literary arts. The participating artists will be chosen through a lottery process; only online registrations from NYC residents received before the March 30 deadline will be considered.
This is a unique opportunity for New York City artists to step outside their daily routine and focus on developing professional skills and artistic goals in a community setting. Designed to help artists build a path to greater sustainability and self-sufficiency, ASI combines the best of Creative Capital’s Professional Development Program (PDP) and LMCC’s Basic Finance for Artists program to provide a comprehensive range of training, tools and resources for working artists.
The program is intended for artists who seek arts-focused professional training in the areas of business and strategic planning, verbal communications, financial management, marketing, promotion and effective Internet strategies.
