Not much is going on here in Raleigh, because many of our roads are still icy–so I’ve been using the snow-induced down time to explore some great musical & arts-centered websites. This one, Entrepreneur the Arts is one of the most exciting sites I’ve found for working artists. It’s packed with resources, articles, and business advice for artists, and is truly a must-read for full-time artists of any discipline! Many thanks to Durham clarinetist Scott More for passing along the link.
Two things especially jumped out at me on the Entrepreneur the Arts site: their aim to “tap into the power of creative artistry to innovate lives, bottom lines, and the communities we live in,” and their commitment to helping artists build more fulfilling careers through entrepreneurship. These two ideas resonate deeply with me simply because THEY WORK! Over the past 3 years, we’ve seen the benefits of artistic entrepreneurship and a community focus come alive here at Summerglen. Andrew and I are definitely well-fed, happy artists…and the ETA website shows you how you can be one, too!
Here’s a sampling of some of the helpful articles over at ETA:

Hope you enjoy these articles as much as I did. Many thanks to Entrepreneur the Arts for your support of working artists!
