The ABCs of building a business in the performing and visual arts
Takin’ care of business. As an artist or performer, whether you’re a newcomer or veteran, it’s not as easy as the old song says. It’s challenging to build a career that provides reliable paycheques while maintaining excellence and meaning in your medium.
To help those who are developing careers in arts and culture, the Nelson and District Chamber of Commerce has pulled together a how-to guide. Topics run the gamut from writing a business plan, to knowing your competition, to finding support through others.
There’s also a list of 17 helpful contacts you can reach out to for funding or advice (including us and the Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance grants that we manage).
