When we talk about innovators and entrepreneurs, we tend to talk a lot about technology, but there’s a whole other group of rule-breakers, trend-makers and disruptors in the innovation space. From visual arts to film, artists are a major part of the entrepreneurial community, and right now they’re facing change and uncertainty just like everyone else.
That’s why we’re partnering with RBC to bring the innovation ecosystem a brand new series aimed at empowering artists of all kinds with the business, entrepreneurial and financial literacy they need to make big changes in our world.
The RBC Emerging Artists Academy centres on Canada’s flourishing community of creators, supporting their development and highlighting the role of the arts in building vibrant communities and strong economies.
This 5-part virtual series integrates resources, introduces artists to decision-making leaders and showcases emerging artists.
