The Artist Entrepreneur Incubator (AEI) is a series of monthly discipline-based interactive workshops for artists who are interested in transitioning their craft into a business.

Workshops are led by artists of all disciplines, arts consultants, and educators. They’ll include information on basic business, licensing, marketing, contracts, and identifying resources for support and sustainability.

Nominal fees apply, but there are exceptions. Learn more here.
