Business Strategies for Artists with Shey Rivera Ríos

FREE VIRTUAL WORKSHOP: Wednesdays, June 15 & 22, 2022 | 2 – 4 p.m.

Artists often run their own creative businesses. And as the world changes, artists continue building alternative structures to sustain themselves. Let’s talk about this and share experiences. This two-part workshop will present strategies for developing a more sustainable art practice and will also take a look at what opportunities exist for artists in today’s economy. During the first session, we will share practice, compare experiences, and explore the possibilities together. The second session will be focused on turning the ideas from part one into strategies for gaining new income streams, sustaining your practice, and leveraging resources. Participants will be encouraged to share a practice or project they wish to workshop during the session. Shey Rivera Rios is an interdisciplinary artist, cultural strategist, and arts administrator whose artistic creations span a myriad of topics, from home to capitalism to queerness & magic.

Presented in partnership with Assets for Artists.

Suitable for artists of all disciplines. Open exclusively to artists who live in Massachusetts’ South Coast region.
