& 研讨会

艺术 & Business Council’s professional development and capacity building programs are designed to provide essential training, practical frameworks, and direct coaching to artists and creative entrepreneurs. We collaborate with nonprofit organizations, universities, and municipalities to provide customized learning engagements for their cohorts.

What We Bring

Our current workshop offerings are steeped in a long history of successful programs for artists and creative entrepreneurs as well as 20+ years of legal counsel, 诊所, and services via our Volunteer Lawyers for the 艺术 program. We receive hundreds of calls each year from artists and arts administrators seeking help with contracts, 谈判, copyright concerns, and even human resource matters. What we learn about the real and pressing needs of this population has informed our professional development programming at every step. 


艺术 & Business Council provides a range of live workshops for artists, creative entrepreneurs, arts organizations, nonprofit boards of directors, business executives, legal professionals, and municipalities. Our current offerings focus on core areas for which the A&BC is nationally recognized as experts and thought leaders


艺术 & Business Council can record and share webinars on specific topics or that are designed to complement live workshop programs. 在线研讨会 can include multiple presenters and assorted media, including video, screen-sharing, 和更多的. 


的一个&BC develops 诊所 for general audiences as well as customized engagements that allow participants to delve deeper into particular issues that may have been highlighted in previous workshop programs. 例如, participants can explore contractual, 预算, and procurement processes in greater depth with a smaller group of attendees. 诊所 can also be a format to review a draft contract section by section and/or facilitate a conversation among small groups. This is an especially successful format for addressing legal concerns.

One-on-one coaching

的一个&BC offers the opportunity for one-on-one coaching for individuals and organizations on a variety of themes and topics including estate planning, contract review, legal issues, board development, and nonprofit incorporation. We can also arrange coaching sessions with our partners who specialize in human resource matters, 保险, 市场营销, 和更多的.
