Artselerate is a unique combination of business incubator, start-up accelerator, creative collaboration, and networking opportunity that creates a fast and practical approach to business and strategic planning specifically for creative practitioners and arts organisations.

Artselerate helps participants complete their strategic business and marketing plans, with practical actions ready to be implemented, and creates a continued connection with other creative professionals through a guided peer mentoring program and ongoing access to industry experts and resources.

Here’s what to expect if you join us for Artselerate:

  • A little bit of pre-work to introduce the incubator content, with a focus on cultural safety
  • 2 x 2 day sessions full of tutorials, guest speakers, practical activities, resource sharing, and networking opportunities
  • 4 x 1-hour creative business mentor meetings (optional extra)
  • Participation in our guided ‘Buddy’ peer support program
  • Ongoing connection to the Artselerate alumni

And a whole lot more.

Phew! So much goodness jam packed into one program.

Artselerate is a program designed for creative practitioners at any stage of their professional development—it’s a safe and structured melting pot of experiences, attitudes, and ideas to get your planning done!

You could be…

  • An individual artist or maker from any area of the creative industry
  • A recent graduate or fledgling freelancer just getting started
  • Someone representing a small creative organisation or arts not-for-profit
  • A leader from a mid-sized arts or screen organisation who doesn’t have the financial resources to hire a consultant or participate in a more expensive program

Or anything in between!

We welcome keen beans from any area of creative practice. Ideally, you are committed to improving your professional and creative capacity and developing your business and marketing skills in an accelerated way, using a practical methodology.
