Just getting home from three days of intense training at the Indiana Arts Commission for Creative Entrepreneurs On Ramp Conferencein Madison, IN. What an honor to have been able to share such an awesome experience with 35 other extremely talented artists representing so many different genres.
I can not even begin the express the gratitude I have for being chose to participate in this program. I’ve learned so much and will now apply that knowledge towards writing my grant proposal for the On-Ramp Fellowship.
Over 100 Hoosiers applied to participate in the accelerator program. The 36 participants (locations mapped below) that were invited are preparing to expand their creative work with an entrepreneurial approach.
“Fifty-seven percent of the creative workforce in Indiana is self-employed, far exceeding the national average of 20 percent. Helping these Hoosiers be successful in their careers not only benefits them, but also strengthens the communities in which they live and work.
We’re intending that this program will help retain some of the best and brightest creative workers in Indiana.”
