Art-Train Individual Artist Training

Online Event, Minneapolis, MN

01:00 PM to 04:00 PM


The free Art-Train Individual Artist Training is for artists who are interested in building on their existing skills to collaborate in and with their communities through their local agencies, non-profits, and arts councils. Artists will deepen practices around creative problem solving, equitable community engagement, and creating arts-based strategies to address recovery efforts.


After taking a synchronous virtual training, artists receive one year of ongoing virtual support through an online resource library and optional bi-weekly group coaching rooms with Art-Train staff, experts and an expanding network of peers (every other Thursday).


The goal of this training is to help artists identify how they can contribute to equitable recovery & rebuilding by a) understanding and advocating for local artists’ role in community and economic development, and b) by building their skills in equitable collaboration.


We will share ways to engage and influence the agencies and organizations that are eligible to receive and deploy American Rescue Plan block grants (allocated to every City, County, State and Tribal Territory in the US) to create programming that engages local artists in recovery.

How should I set up my business: as a sole proprietor, LLC, corporation, or partnership?  What can I deduct and how do I track my expenses?  How do I report my business income and expenses?
