This intensive course will explore a wide variety of models and approaches for expanding your resources— from business planning and income generation to researching, identifying and applying for funding.
With insight and candor, arts professionals from both the public and private sectors will provide advice and expertise using examples from their own personal experience. Over eight sessions, these guest speakers will consider the opportunities available to people working in the arts for contributing to and supporting the activities of organizations as well as securing the resources they need for individual career development and project-based work.
Sessions are facilitated by the Course Leader and students are encouraged to participate in both group discussions and a Q&A at the end of each session, before exploring the issues raised in structured group work. Practical tasks and workshops will be integrated into the course to enable students to use a hands-on approach to learning.
This Intensive Course consists of live-streamed lectures and discussions. Recordings of the live sessions are accessible anytime during the course via our online learning platform, Canvas.

- To develop your ability to think creatively, strategically, and ambitiously about how to use existing resources to generate new opportunities
- To gain a basic understanding of business planning in the art world and how to navigate the marketplace
- To research, identify and write funding applications to maximize the potential for success
