Art is King meetups connects the art industry with artists, curators, entrepreneurs and art business mentors to assist the artist in building a sustainable art business.
We meet once a month to discuss the issues the creative class is facing and we share art biz resources, entrepreneurship education and build relationships to empower Artist career development.
Each month we tackle a different theme but we also let the creatives drive the discussion.
