    MASSACHUSETTS artists, apply now! Our Fall 2012 application is available

    Announcing Assets for Artists’ Fall 2012 grant cycle for artist-entrepreneurs living in or operating their businesses from Massachusetts.

    Apply now and join a group of MA artists who have been growing their businesses with the help of Assets for Artists since 2008!

    Eligible applicants include artists in all disciplines – visual artists, performers, designers, photographers, film-makers, artisans, etc. — whose practice would benefit from the opportunity to receive working capital funds and improve their financial and business management skills to make valuable investments aimed at growing their creative enterprises. By meeting savings goals and by completing the required training, participating Massachusetts artists can receive $2,000 in grant funds as a savings match for “working capital” to grow their creative enterprise. Three training sessions on personal finance and business management for artists will be provided for free. All sessions will be offered in Lowell, Pittsfield, and Boston (specific dates TBA) and are designed to help the participants reach their personal savings goal and develop a basic business plan for investing the funds.

    For more information and to confirm your eligibility, please download the complete application form, either as a word document or as a PDF. Right click, save the document to your computer, close out, and then re-open the document in Word or Adobe before starting to fill in the form to be sure your information will save.
