This workshop is the starting point for artists who are doing what they love but not quite making a living yet. We’ll outline the services and resources available to you at YES and from other arts organizations in the community, and touch upon key things to consider in building a career or business in the arts.  

Topics include: getting to know your industry, marketing/promotion, developing relationships with stakeholders, understanding the funding landscape and essential grant-writing tips.  

During the workshop, there will be ample time for a one-on-one consultation with a dedicated artist coach who will help you identify what services would best suit your needs as an artist and entrepreneur.  

Please Note: Pre-registration is required. This workshop is available both in-person as well as online.

If you registered for the in-person workshop please present yourself at the YES office, situated at 666 Sherbrooke Street West on the 7th floor, 15-30 minutes prior to the start time of the workshop.

If you registered for the online workshop, you will receive an email with instructions on how to log on a few hours prior to the start time of the workshop.
