Art as a Sustainable Practice: Nurture Your Entrepreneurial Mindset with Ángel Luis González


This seminar is aimed at any individuals wishing to earn a living from creative and artistic practices, particularly those struggling to start.

The seminar encourages all participants to think critically about their present circumstances, to examining what changes need to be carried out to achieve a sustainable practice. Presenting basic business concepts and ideas, the mentor will offer you core skills in the administration of your new sustainable practice. Special focus will be placed on identifying and generating sources of revenue. The seminar will end with a practical exercise that will help all participants to write up an action plan to affect change.
