Artist INC Live Oklahoma City is a cutting-edge training program that addresses the specific business needs and challenges of artists. Limited to 25 participants, artists gather once a week for eight weeks to learn business skills specific to their art practice and apply those skills cooperatively with their peers.

Through mentorship, expert presentations, and peer networks artists gain:

  • Tools and skills in arts planning, marketing, finance, law and technology;
  • An increased knowledge of and ability to access local and national art business resources;
  • A strategic artist’s plan for pursuing, marketing and sustaining their art; and
  • A long-term network of cross-discipline, diverse artists to provide peer learning and support into the future.

Artist INC Live is open to any artist of any discipline, from emerging to established.
