The Artists Summer Institute (ASI) is a free, five-day professional development intensive for 55 New York City artists working in all disciplines, offered through a partnership between Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (LMCC) and Creative Capital.
Held at a new LMCC artist studio and rehearsal space in Lower Manhattan, the Artists Summer Institute offers a unique opportunity for New York City artists to step outside their daily routines and focus on their professional skills and artistic goals. Designed to help artists build a path to greater sustainability and self-sufficiency, ASI combines the best of Creative Capital’s Professional Development Program (PDP) and LMCC’s Basic Finance for Artists program to provide a comprehensive range of training, tools and resources for working artists. Participants will gain access to arts-focused professional training in the areas of business and strategic planning, verbal communications, financial management, marketing, promotion and effective Internet strategies.
