Workshops & Trainings

“There is plenty of entrepreneurial training available, but there are only a few programs that offer entrepreneurial training that is truly tailored for creative individuals. There are even fewer that offer the training to a small cohort of creative individuals at once, enabling them to support each other along the way. This program from the Tamarack Foundation for the Arts does just that by centering the creative community as the designers and the beneficiaries of this program. By drawing on the experiences of creative individuals to answer and address specific creative challenges, this program meets folks exactly where they are, enabling them to grow in exactly the way they want.”

Tamarack Foundation for the Arts Business Accelerator is a 6-month arts business cohort program for women and BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, Person of Color) arts-focused business owners and facilitated by Elaine Grogan Luttrull, Minerva Financial Arts.

Tamarack Foundation for the Arts (TFA), in partnership with the WV Hive, recognizes the need to support the development of women and BIPOC-owned small businesses within southern West Virginia counties and areas declared ARC-distressed or at-risk. The TFA Arts Business Accelerator aims to increase the number of arts-focused small business startups owned by women and BIPOC and increase the capacity and growth of already existing women and BIPOC-owned arts-based small businesses in southern West Virginia. TFA will accomplish this by providing a cohort of 20 individuals with small-business development training, coaching, access to accountants, learning workshops, subsidies to access markets, and networking opportunities over a six-month training period
