Collective Entrepreneurship in the Arts
Are you an artist looking to start a business? Join us on December 8 from 2 to 3 p.m.! This workshop, co-presented with ELAN’s Québec Relations project, will explore key components of the entrepreneurial process as well as what it takes to create a new enterprise and the advantages of collective entrepreneurship. Rooted in creativity and innovation, the collective entrepreneurial model may resonate better with some artists or cultural workers since it can be more flexible than the usual not-for-profit organizational model and opens up different pathways to funding.
About our co-presenter: The English-Language Arts Network (ELAN) is a not-for-profit organization that connects, supports, and creates opportunities for Quebec’s English-speaking artists and arts communities. ELAN members are individuals and organizations from a wide array of artistic disciplines, cultural and geographic backgrounds, and linguistic and cultural communities. Together this network reflects an evolving Québec identity and celebrates the province’s cultural, artistic, and social diversity.
