Professional Development Retreat

The Maine Arts Commission in partnership with the Maine College of Art is offering a chance for artists to take part in a two-day Creative Capital professional development retreat in Portland in mid-September. Day one, on September 15, will be devoted to business development, financial planning and negotiating/communicating. The following day will offer training on targeted marketing, personalized website reviews and promotional case studies.

The retreat is intended for serious professional artists who have reached a point of stasis in their career and are seeking to hone their professionalism and construct a personal strategic plan which will enable them to proceed in the most effective manner through goal setting, time management, effective communications and promotion, personal evaluation, networking etcetera.

The first two sessions on Saturday are free to everyone, but you must RSVP to attend. The full two-day retreat, a $660 value, is offered for $10, the remainder is covered by the Maine Arts Commission. There is a juried process to attend and full details of this are on MaineArts.com.

The deadline for applications is August 15.
