Assets for Artists is now accepting applications from artist-entrepreneurs living in or operating their businesses from Lowell, Massachusetts.
Eligible applicants include artists in all disciplines – visual artists, performers, designers, photographers, film-makers, artisans, etc. — whose practice would benefit from the opportunity to receive working capital funds and improve their financial and business management skills to make valuable investments aimed at growing their creative enterprises. By meeting savings goals and by completing the required training, participating Lowell artists can receive $1,500 in grant funds as a savings match for “working capital” to grow their creative enterprise. The training on personal finance and business management for artists will be provided free in fall/winter 2012, and is designed to help the participants reach their personal savings goal and develop a basic business plan for investing the funds. For more information and to confirm your eligibility, please download the complete application form.
Application Deadline: April 30, 2012 by 5:00 pm. Please submit all material to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Assets for Artists is supported in part by grants from the Citizens Bank Foundation, the Massachusetts Cultural Council, the City of Lowell, the Cultural Organization of Lowell (COOL), and the federal Assets for Independence (AFI) program. The program is administered by MASS MoCA, the Midas Collaborative, and ArtHome.
