Professional Development

New York City Workshops

Held in Creative Capital's downtown office space, our local workshops sustain New York's creative community by giving artists the management strategies they need to achieve their professional goals, ensuring the livelihood and longevity of their careers. 

Our workshops set the stage for participants to engage in peer learning and resource sharing with each other and in the local community long after the workshop ends. Workshops are presented through engaging lectures, small-group sessions, one-on-one consultations with workshop leaders, and peer critiques, and address topics related to strategic planning, fundraising, budgeting, time management, communications, website development, and promotion to help artists expand their skills and advance their careers. All workshops are designed and led by artists for artists. 

Our local workshop season runs from October to May each year. Please find below the topics that will be covered in this workshop season. Many of the exact workshop dates are still tentative, but will be updated once they are confirmed.
