About Creative Capital’s Professional Development Program (PDP): In 2003, Creative Capital launched the Professional Development Program to share with a broad community of artists some of the tools and strategies for improved self-sufficiency that were initially developed for grantees. Since then, PDP has refined these methodologies and developed new ones, which it has shared with more than 4,000 artists in more than 69 communities around the country. PDP presents a variety of weekend, one-day, and evening length workshop offerings in self-management, strategic planning, fundraising, web strategies, verbal communication, and promotion.
