At the last MAG – AGM, Nick Previsich mentioned that MOCA (Merrickville Organization for Culture and the Arts) was interested in helping local artists better understand the business side of producing and selling art. MOCA has been informed of an upcoming event in Ottawa that may address this topic and may appeal to you. Artpreneur, a project of Artsnet Ottawa, is a business-oriented professional development conference taking place on May 31st in downtown Ottawa and might be of interest to MAG artists. The topics will range from media, marketing and brand development, investing in management and intermediary services, to strategic uses of city spaces and infrastructure.
More details will be released in the next couple of weeks. You can check the Artpreneur website at: https://artsnetottawa.ca/collaborations/artpreneur-ottawa/
