If there’s a secret sauce for how artists can sustain thriving businesses—and lead the way as essential economic contributors in uncertain times—we’ve just published the recipe. Two years in the making, The Clark Hulings Foundation’s Report on the Working Artist represents the first time an organization has assembled and analyzed hard data on the working artist from every relevant digital report. We’ve broken down silos between organizations and done the heavy lifting of making this information accessible and intelligible to everyone who might benefit from it.
The Report not only demonstrates the huge demand for the kind of art-business training CHF provides—not to mention the measurable effectiveness of our programs in providing it—but situates the art industry in the larger economy. We make a rock-solid case for the fact that artists’ work is serious business, and that serious investment in artists’ success pays off.
Art-business training works. And it benefits all of us. You can find the full Report on the Working Artist here. Then what? Share the Report and spread the word.
