Entrepreneurship for Artists
This four part mini workshop series is a resource for self-employed artists that are interested in the tools to be successful entrepreneurs.
Co-hosted by the Sustainable Little Tokyo Arts Action Committee and the Little Tokyo Service Center Small Business Assistance Program we aim to bridge the gap between small business and careers in the arts.
