Since 20014, Assets for Artists has offered a series of professional development workshops for creatives in Massachusetts — for free! These trainings, held in locations throughout the state, cover focused topics to help artists in all disciplines unlock their revenue growth potential. We’ve gathered experts from the artist community to teach the particular skills involved in generating online sales channels for creative products, branding a creative business, translating social media into revenue growth, etc.

After several years of expanding to serve artists across the Northeast, the North Adams Project initiative brings our artist support programming back to its hometown. Our NA Project offers a variety of funding and educational opportunities to artists looking to set down and deepen their entrepreneurial roots in our exciting creative community.
