The Growing Organization

South Florida Artist EntrepreneursTheSouth Florida Artist Entrepreneurs Meetup Group the network of local artist entrepreneurs, and alumni of the "Artist as an Entrepreneur Institute" (AEI) gathers monthly to share tips and problem solving techniques, get advice on career and, discuss mentoring and business models for artists.

What it takes to be a professional artist is more than knowing your craft, you have to know how to run a business. Your materials cost money and, you need to hire assistants, you need a contract, you need to copyright your work and, you need to make a living!

When? Two Different Monthly Meetups
Where? Broward & Miami-Dade
