Art World Conference is a series of actionable, inclusive workshops and events, both in-person and online, focused on business and financial health to build and sustain careers in the arts. We believe financial health and sustainability for cultural producers is a social justice issue.
Programming includes panel discussions and in-depth workshops addressing many of the unique opportunities and challenges faced by visual artists, freelancers, and arts professionals. Topics range from sales, marketing, grants, taxes, managing debt, building credit, investing, and legal issues, to defining and asserting value, solidarity, new technologies, legacy planning, and growing and sustaining community. The emphasis of all programming is on personal and professional development and empowerment.
