"Massachusetts College of Art and Design (MassArt) will offer several workshops and opportunities for professional development later this year, funded by a Workforce Development grant from the Mayor’s Office of Arts and Culture.

"According to a press release, offerings include:

  • 24 one-day non-credit creative economy workshops for aspiring and practicing entrepreneurs ranging from high-level introductions to tactical advice on a range of business related topics such as taxes, branding, social media, and grant writing. The calendar of workshops will be announced in September.
  • One-on-one office hours with workshop speakers to ask individual follow-up questions.
  • Portfolio reviews and critique groups for Boston-based visual artists led by MassArt graduate program faculty. Artists may sign up for a 30 minute one-on-one zoom session with a faculty member and the critique groups will be open to groups of up to four artists for two hours.  
  • Space for 12 artists to enroll in MassArt’s Creative Economy Business Incubator program, an eight-month two-course program designed to teach creative entrepreneurship through the launch and growth of a student-owned venture. The application process is now open and will close August 5, 2022."
