Artist: Stop being poor. Implementing a business mindset to your creative career

7th September 2017 ,5:00 pm - 7:00 pm


There is this romantic idea burnt into our brain, this image of the broke artists cooked up in his studio, creating groundbreaking work that will go completely unnoticed until his death, when he will be discovered and hailed as art genius and his paintings will reach multi million price tags in international fairs and auctions.

Sounds nice, doesn’t work.

This idea of an artist is outdated, unrealistic and unsuccessful. The whole idea most have of an artist is completely away from reality.

With today’s technologies artists can empower themselves and manage a fulfilling career with open tools that don’t require much technical knowledge.

This talk by Stephan van Kuyk will cover issues such as selling art online, creating an audience, social media for artist and exploring new strategies for growing your career.
