Creative Alliance of New Orleans is currently accepting applications for Creative Capital's Core Curriculum Workshop presented on March 9-11, 2012. This one of a kind opportunity has been described as a "crash course in self-management, strategic planning, fundraising and promotion" for artists of all creative genres. The Creative Capital Workshop takes artists on a two and one-half day retreat led by nationally renowned arts professionals. The experience is limited to 24 artists from Louisiana. Applications can be found at http://cano-la.org. Applications will be reviewed by a selection committee with the goal of assembling a very diverse group of artists from varied artistic genres and cultural backgrounds. This is the first time that Creative Capital's workshop will be held in New Orleans. While many different forms of art are flourishing in New Orleans, it is still tough for local artists to create a sustainable income for themselves. The Creative Capital Workshop intends to change this situation.
Some of the skills that will be taught are:
* Financial Planning Basics
* Indie Essentials
* Funding Strategies
* Websites and Social Networking
* Reaching New Audiences
The Creative Alliance believes that this program presents an
opportunity for Louisiana artists to learn new methods in improving
their professional careers in the arts. Please go to our website http://cano-la.org to apply.
