The Art of Managing Your Career Intensive – Indigenous Perspectives is a fast-paced course that provides an overview of the practical skills you need to grow and manage your career as an artist.

For artists working in any artistic discipline, this four-day course covers both business and cultural topics from an Indigenous Perspective, including:
• Indigenous Ways of Being, Learning and Doing
• Cultural Mapping
• Business Plan Development
• Finances for Artists
• Project Planning
• Preparing a Portfolio
• Promoting Yourself

The course is open to anyone with an existing or emerging arts practice including craftspeople, dancers, filmmakers, musicians, new media content creators, visual artists, writers and knowledge keepers. If you are a self-employed artist, or looking to increase the portion of your employment derived from your art, then this course is for you.

Lunch will be provided.

Each participant will also receive two follow-up coaching sessions with professional lifestyle and career management coach Jessica Dumas, following the initial course to keep you motivated and on-track!
