The theme for the 2014 season of the Northcoast Art Alliance highlights "Artistic Creativity: A Business that Matters."
Workshops and sessions during this year will provide valuable information, tools, and resources for NAA members and community participants to grow their organizations and prepare long-term sustainability for local arts groups and individuals. The arts are a vital part of our region's economic impact. This year, the NAA is focused on developing and enriching our regional creative economy.
On Saturday, Feb. 1, from 10 a.m. to noon, the NAA, along with the Sandusky State Theatre, will present a free workshop "Working to Create a Business Plan that Works for You."
Whether you are an individual or an arts group, this presentation and workshop is designed to establish the basics of a business plan that relates to you, and how to think more aggressively about growing and sustaining what you do. Despite what "arts people" think, business plans do not take long to do and easily become a successful development plan for a solid future.
Led by Bill Auxter, Director, Small Business Development Center, the workshop will be held at Sandusky State Theatre, 107 Columbus Avenue, Sandusky. Reservations are appreciated by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 419-559-2229.
The Northcoast Arts Alliance is dedicated to enriching our region through arts and culture. Check out the NAA at www.northcoastarts.com and get involved today.
