Artists to Discuss Business Training at May Forum

The Arts Council of Windham County (ACWC) is sponsoring a forum, "Business Training for Artists," on Wednesday, May 25, from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. at the Moore Free Library (23 West Street) in Newfane, Vermont.

This year, the ACWC provided scholarship funds to seven Windham County artists accepted into the two-day Vermont Arts Council (VAC) professional development workshop for artists, "Breaking into Business," which was held in February. Windham County artisans Brad Dinwiddie, Antoinette Lane, Ellie Roden, Heather Bartels-Hallenbeck, Marilyn Buhlmann, Alyssa Morar, and Dianne Yelton were selected for the workshop. Most will be available at the Newfane forum to share what they learned about business and marketing planning specifically tailored to the needs of artists.

The panel discussion is intended for artists of all disciplines (visual, performing, media, literary, crafts, and traditional). Those attending will hear and share ideas on how to achieve greater success in their current or dreamed-of arts business. The session will also identify needs for additional business training and services for area artists. There is no charge for the forum.

Since 1975, the Arts Council of Windham County has worked to strengthen the environment for artists and arts organizations in the region. For more information about ACWC or "Business Training for Artists," visit the ACWC website: www.acwc.us.
