DARLINGHURST: Artselerate Cohort 2

July 29, 2023 @ 9:00 am 5:00 pm

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 connection to experts.

Artselerate is a program designed for creative practitioners at any stage of their professional development — it’s a 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.

Plus you must be over 18, and live and/or work in the City of Sydney LGA.

We welcome keen beans from any area of practice, including screen, music, performing arts, design, fashion, visuals arts, writing, and multi-arts.

Ideally, you are committed to improving your professional and creative capacity and developing your business and marketing skills in an accelerated way, through a practical approach.

You also need to be engaged, enthusiastic, and willing to commit to participating in the whole program. That means BOTH weekends and in-between meetings. It’s compulsory!

We actively encourage applications from people of culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, people with disabilities, people who identify as LGBTQIA+, and people of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander descent. We also welcome people of all genders.

Venue: East Sydney Community and Arts Centre, 34–40 Burton Street, Darlinghurst 2010

Artselerate takes place over two weekends (Saturday the 29th and Sunday the 30th July from 9am—5pm, and Saturday the 16th and Sunday the 17th September from 9am—5pm). If you have any questions, please email tess@creativeplusbusiness.com
