Come to Arts Revolution



Registration now open for ArtsRevolution ‘Artrepreneur’ workshop

Greensboro, N.C. (March 1, 2017) – Registration is now open for the ArtsRevolution Artrepreneur Art-Business Workshop, a unique opportunity for local artists to increase their business acumen and develop strategies to start and grow art-focused businesses.

Presented by UNCG’s North Carolina Entrepreneurship Center (NCEC), the event will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 1, at Revolution Mill. The event includes 10 experiential breakout sessions led by local business professionals and successful career artists. Participants will have extensive access to each expert speaker, as well as the opportunity to network with other artists.

“Given the success of last year’s event, we’re thrilled to once again offer this workshop and provide longer, more in-depth sessions to our participants,” said Jan Szelkowski, assistant director of NCEC. “We’re focused on providing a highly valuable experience to artists who are working within a budget.”

The workshop is part of the annual daylong ArtsRevolution event, which also features a free, community-wide ArtaPalooza arts festival with more than 25 live artistic performances and experiences.

Student tickets for the workshop start at $40 and general attendee tickets start at $80. To learn more and to register for the workshop – and to view the complete list of performers for the festival – visit
