#Art Biz Bootcamp
Building a sustainable business in the art world today requires flexibility and an unceasing willingness to learn. Our Founder Susan J Mumford has developed a curriculum based on more than twenty years in the art market and over fifteen as an business owner (eventually realising that she’s an entrepreneur!).
The bootcamp supports you to develop the thinking, strategy and foundation on which to build long-term business success.
Following the Foundation module and bonus ‘Business Model Canvas’ session, each of the six lessons includes videos and is accompanied by a watch-live-together-and-discuss get-together in Susan’s Zoom room. Throughout the course, you will have access to the #ArtBizBootcampers Slack channel.
Upon successful completion, you will be able to join the #ArtBizBootcampGraduates Slack channel. Better yet, graduates have ongoing complimentary access to future editions of the bootcamp – we look forward to seeing long-time bootcampers returning to refresh and update knowledge!
