Artist:Entrepreneur Day

The next edition of the Artist:Entrepreneur Day, the artist-led education programme from the FAC and CMU:DIY, has been confirmed. This edition will take place in London – at the Islington Assembly Hall on Monday 11 Jun – with support from Resonate, Dice and AIM.

Once again the day will be hosted by three artist entrepreneurs, this time Roxanne De Bastion, Eckoes and Femme, who will each open up their own artist businesses and discuss what is going on inside. They will also question a team of music industry experts on how to build a fanbase, get on the road and manage your music rights, and about the role each of an artist’s business partners plays.

More details about those music industry experts, and other artists set to lift the lid on their own careers and businesses, will be announced next Monday, when tickets will also go on sale. For more information on the topics that will be discussed along the way, check the A:E Day running order here.

Confirming this latest edition, FAC CEO Lucie Caswell says: “We’ve been developing our Artist:Entrepreneur programme with CMU:DIY and our amazing artist advocates since last summer and are really excited to now be taking the whole project on a UK tour, kicking off in London next month”.

She goes on: “Artists sharing their experiences and supporting their peers is invaluable, and really helps empower the next generation of artist entrepreneurs. FAC has always pioneered this artist-to-artist approach with its education projects, and the A:E Day takes that ethos to a whole new level. It’s a platform where artists can connect with other artists and share practical knowledge, while also hearing from role models, mentors and partners who can inform and support the growth of each artist’s own business”.
