The Art of Managing Your Career Spring 2017 is now open for applications! You must be an ACI Manitoba member to apply. The course is designed to address the need for business training for self-employed artists in all disciplines.

The workshop modules give working artists the confidence and knowledge to successfully manage their careers or businesses in the cultural sector. The workshop material has been designed at a college/university level and is applicable to artists from all disciplines.

Based on adult education principles, the workshops are highly participative and provide opportunities to practice and use skills and competencies essential to career self-management.

The workshop modules begin by exploring the attitudes and behaviours that may make it difficult for artists to recognize their transferable skills. It then builds components of a business plan and other self-promotion tools. A peer learning network will be established to support the participants once the workshop modules have been completed.

By the end of this course, you will have developed an extensive business plan, a marketing plan, and have a template for managing your finances.
