ArtsLink NB's CATAPULT Arts Accelerator gives New Brunswick artists the tools to be prolific & build sustainable careers.
Business skills training, career development, workshops, and mentorship - all in one program.
Artists need the work habits that would allow any entrepreneur or small business owner to succeed in his/her field. Good time management. Solid record keeping and sound financial management. Effective self-promotion and professionalization of your brand. Telling a good story and being heard. Knowing how to write a contract. CATAPULT is all about helping you to be purposeful and organized about the business side of your artistic practice.
Over an 8-week period, CATAPULT participants receive training in fundamental entrepreneurial skills like business modelling, marketing, branding, financial planning, and exporting. Guest speakers and facilitators for the CATAPULT workshops are drawn both from the business and professional art community. Participants also receive one-on-one coaching from the program coordinator and formal mentorships from individuals operating at the top of their field.
