Artist INC is a cutting edge training seminar that addresses the specific business needs and challenges artists of all disciplines face every day. Limited to 25 participants per session, artists gather for one night a week for eight weeks to learn business skills specific to their art practice and apply those skills cooperatively with their peers. Using an innovative class design, artists learn and grow together through artist facilitator mentoring, small group application activities, as well as large group discussion and multi-media lecture. Now in its eleventh year, the Artist INC workshop has been completed by more than 1,400 regional artists. Artist INC Kansas City is a program of Mid-America Arts Alliance and is supported by the National Endowment for the Arts and individuals throughout Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Texas.
The next Artist INC Kansas City session will be in the Fall of 2020. This session will run on eight consecutive Monday evenings from 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm from September 28, 2020- November 16, 2020. Session will take place at Mid-America Arts Alliance, 2018 Baltimore Ave, Kansas City, MO 64108.
