Our creative programs are deep dives that ask creators to confront hard questions about the business side of their creative practice, identify allies that will move things forward, and practice new ways of organizing to get things done in a fast-moving and constantly-changing sector.
Our arts entrepreneur programs are multi-day interdisciplinary education classes on what it takes to be a creative entrepreneur. The creative sector is constantly changing and business as usual may not be good enough. Funding, copyright, business models, community engagement, branding, technology, and emerging markets and audiences are all central concerns of creators across arts disciplines.
Each of our programs are designed to solve the problems that creatives face when building more sustainable arts businesses.

Creative Entrepreneurship for New Canadians

Adapt: The Future of Your Creative Work
The stories we tell about careers are increasingly distant from reality. Rather than moving through a series of jobs, young creators must assemble a career out of projects, roles, and professional development.
Fast Learn Weekend
A Fast Learn Weekend will take you through the full Creative Entrepreneurship learning cycle so that you can build out the business side of your ideas or renew your existing business to respond to industry changes. The pace is fast and the expectation is that you will be ready to get your hands dirty and share openly with your fellow participants.
