Workshop History

 

We Help Communities 

Over the past 16 years, the Arts Business Institute has held workshops across the United States and Canada, bringing its team of art marketing and business experts to communities where artists are in need of professional advice related to the development of  their craft businesses.

Each workshop is created through by partnering with community organizations, arts councils, guilds, art schools, and donations from supporting companies and foundations.  Generous grants from the Appalachian Regional Commission and the National Endowment for the Arts have enabled us to provide the following programming:
