RISD Careers | Business Planning for Artists & Designers - Art of Business

Having a roadmap for your art as a business frees up brain space and allows you to focus on your creative work. Business planning doesn't have to be scary; and this workshop with Sarah Guerette—director of the Women’s Business Center at Coastal Enterprises, Inc.—will break it down into easily digestible areas for consideration. Consider such questions as How am I creating value for my customers? Who are the key partners I'll need to make this work? You'll walk away with the tools to develop your own canvas and the confidence and encouragement to take some initial steps into the world of business planning. 

Sarah Guerette directs the Women’s Business Center at CEI focusing on women-owned businesses. Originally from Bangor, Maine, Sarah has worked with small business owners both in Boston and Ecuador, where she lived for nearly five years. Sarah is a business counselor who specializes in small businesses and artist-run enterprises. She runs a workshop for artists that will cover the fundamentals of running an arts-based business, equipping participants with the skills needed to develop a personalized business plan. Most suitable for commercial and craft-based artists. https://www.mainesbdc.org/advisor/sarah-guerette/
