About the Workshop


As a student in Art, Graphic Design, Music, New Media Communications or Theatre at Oregon State University, you will graduate and become a professional in your field. You won't exclusively be an artist. You will also be the proprietor of your own business or a partner or employee in a larger enterprise. You will not only produce your art, but also market and disseminate it, even if you operate in the non-profit realm.

To help you prepare for the business side of the artist's life in the real world, the OSU School of Arts and Communication invites you to a free, day long workshop on Entrepreneurship in the Arts on Saturday, March 11, 2017 from 9:00am - 3:00pm at the CH2M Hill Alumni Center on the OSU Campus. A free catered lunch will be provided.

The workshop is limited to OSU students in Art, Graphic Design, Music, New Media Communications and Theatre. Seniors will be given priority. Seating is limited.
