Artist:Entrepreneur Day

The Artist:Entrepreneur Day from the Featured Artists Coalition and CMU:DIY returns next month with two editions – one online and one in person at the English Folk Expo in Manchester.

This is the artist-to-artist education programme. CMU’s Chris Cooke explains how artists can build a business around their music, then three artist entrepreneurs from the FAC open up their individual artist businesses to demonstrate how everything works in practice.

Meanwhile a team of music industry experts will be on hand to offer lots of practical tips and advice. Along the way we cover music rights, live performance and the fan relationship, and look at the business partners artists might work with along the way.

At the online A:E Day on Saturday 2 Oct – supported by Arts Council England and PPL – you’ll get to hear from artist entrepreneurs Benny Bizzie, Sherika Sherard and Shannon O’Neill (aka Sister Ghost).

And the Artist:Entrepreneur Day as part of English Folk Expo in Manchester on Saturday 23 Oct will feature FAC artist entrepreneurs Ellen Smith, Eckoes and David John Jaggs.
