Initiated in 2010, Artists Summer Institute (ASI) was an annually recurring five-day intensive professional development opportunity for artists. The program, created and developed in partnership between LMCC and Creative Capital, brought together both organizations’ programs to provide more comprehensive, arts-focused training, tools, and advice to help put artists on a path to greater sustainability and self-sufficiency. Participants gained access to arts-focused professional training in the areas of strategic planning, verbal communications, marketing and promotion, Internet optimization, financial management, and business planning.

Over six years, the program served over 300 of New York City’s artists. LMCC is grateful for Creative Capital’s partnership.

Although this series is no longer being offered, the findings from it are being used to develop new programming to address the financial and business planning needs of emerging to mid-career artists.
