Whitney will be hosting a workshop focused on how to start and grow your creative business with a focus on media makers and independent producers. This interactive workshop will enable participants plan for success and sustainability by setting attainable goals, understanding resources available to artists within the Twin Cities and beyond, determining when to take the plunge and what next steps to take in order to get there. Andy Sturdevant, from Springboard for the Arts, and Maria Tototzintle from Tequila Digital Media will be making special presentations about resources for creative people and the real life experience of launching a media business. Come with an idea for a specific project you would like to focus on and expect to leave with concrete next steps and the inspiration to know that you are part of a strong community of independent, entrepreneurial media makers.

Cost for this workshop is $25 for members, $40 for non members, and $15 for limited income members.
