The Octagon Center for the Arts and the Ames Community Arts Council are partnering to present the fourth annual Business of Art Conference on March 4 & 5, 2022. We are dedicated to helping artists grow and succeed — and to supporting the impact of art in the world.

This conference is designed to strengthen skills and resources in both formally trained and self-taught creatives. Topics such as: developing a brand; finding a market through an online presence, festivals, galleries, consignment, and/or retail/wholesale sales; searching for funding; and self-care will be considered. In addition to professional development sessions, the conference will include networking opportunities throughout the day, giving participants the chance to talk one-on-one with the speakers, other professionals, and each other. Professionals and students in all types of creative work, part time or full time, in all stages of their career are welcome.
