Creatives participating in the Rural to Urban Markets program are at a critical juncture in their careers – they have established businesses, happy buyers and produce a range of well-crafted work. They are ready to move their businesses to the next level by accessing new markets, but see the financial commitment involved and understand that new types of business know-how may be required.

While taking part in this three-year program, participants receive technical training, one-on-one advice from creative peers and financial support – assets offered to offset risk and allow these creative entrepreneurs to take their businesses further while maintaining a sustainable growth rate.


Artists working in the craft and fine art sectors have options available in the Rural to Urban Markets Program.
