WV Creative Arts & Business Summit
Learn how to build a successful business and career in the arts in West Virginia
9/17/2021 (2022 Event Date TBD)
Tamarack Foundation for the Arts invites you to join us (virtually) for a day of interactive workshops and artist-led discussions that will help prepare you to take the next step in your creative journey.
Our stellar lineup of speakers, listed below, will share the wisdom they’ve gained from their own experience “making it” as creative entrepreneurs, providing a little personal coaching as well. In addition, you’ll get to hear from this year’s Emerging Artist Fellows and have numerous opportunities to connect with artists from around the state and at many different stages in their careers.
Students and artists of all experience levels are encouraged to join!
