Artist INC Des Moines is a professional development opportunity for artists working in all creative disciplines. The program provides cutting-edge training seminars that address the specific daily business needs and challenges artists of all disciplines face.
Artist INC Des Moines session will be in the Spring of 2021. This session will run on eight consecutive Monday evenings via Zoom from 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm from March 8, 2021 - April 26, 2021.
Artists engage in an eight-week training seminar led by a team of five trained peer facilitators, and designed for up to 25 participants who are selected through a competitive panel process that looks at quality of work, readiness for the program, and diversity of the seminar cohort to ensure diversity and inclusion in all its definitions including demographics (gender, age, and ethnicity) and artistic discipline (including visual, performing, literary, and film). Artists learn and grow together through artist facilitator mentoring, small group application activities, large group discussions and multi-media lectures. Participating artists learn business skills relevant to their art practice and apply those skills cooperatively with the peers.
