Beet Street is very proud to host a Professional Development Core Weekend Workshop for artists presented by the Creative Capital Foundation Friday, March 30 to Sunday, April 1, 2012 in Fort Collins, CO.
The Core Weekend Workshop is the second time Creative Capital’s proven and award-winning programs are being offered in Colorado. Beet Street is able to host the workshop thanks to generous grants from the Kresge Foundation, Erion Foundation and the Bohemian Foundation.
Thanks to all the artists who submitted an application for the 2012 workshop. We received over 60 applications for only 24 spots.
Congratulations to the following artists who will be joining us for the 2012 Creative Capital Core Weekend Workshop:
Creative Capital is a national nonprofit organization, based in New York City and dedicated to providing integrated financial and advisory support to artists pursuing adventurous projects in five disciplines: Emerging Fields, Film/Video, Innovative Literature, Performing Arts (including Music), and Visual Arts.
Working in long-term partnership with artists, Creative Capital’s pioneering approach to support combines funding, counsel and career development services to enable a project’s success and foster sustainable practices for its grantees. In its first decade, Creative Capital has committed more than $20 million in financial and advisory support to 325 projects representing 406 artists, and has reached an additional 3,500 artists through its Professional Development Program.

Creative Capital created the Professional Development Program (PDP) to share with the broader arts community the tools and methods developed to help its grantees manage the business side of their art with greater efficiency and results. Through workshops led by Creative Capital grantees and other arts professionals, PDP teaches artists about self-management, strategic planning, fundraising, verbal communication, promotion and maximizing online capabilities to help them expand their skills and build more sustainable practices.
