CHF's Pivotal Work
The almost obvious but explosive potential for artists and creative professionals to gain entrepreneurial skills is nothing short of an opportunity to create a robust culture and thriving creative economy with the power to enliven and invigorate every cultural sector, infusing it with creative energy, intelligence, and problem solving.
Advocacy and Research
We don't say what we can't prove. Changing the prevailing script about what artists can and can't do requires two things: give creators the training, tools, and connections other professionals take for granted; measure and broadcast the results. You will find CHF at the heart of this effort. Join us.
Professional life is increasingly solitary and creative work is frequently a reflective, highly personal, and even solitary act. The potential energy and actual momentum is exponential when creators and those in the creative and cultural industries cultivate routine and resilient overlapping peer networks.
Media and Awareness
Change does not come to an industry, let alone an entire culture without spotlighting what's possible. CHF does that by producing programming and data that showcase the incredible opportunity of creating a resilient cultural economy of thriving, self-empowered, creative entrepreneurs leading a new rennaissance.
Consulting for Success
Learning is transformative when supported by collaborative brainstorming among peers, mutual exchanges within an industry, development of individual career blueprints, and injections of experience from subject matter experts. CHF enables creative professionals to consult in the context of each of these opportunities.
