Raising funds to support creative workforce training

About the Project

$10,000 = Scholarships for Artists = A vibrant Atlanta Arts Community 

The purpose of this project is to raise $10,000 to fund scholarships for career development education for artists with demonstrated financial need. Creatives of all disciplines come to C4 Atlanta to learn the basics of arts marketing, building their own websites, financial accountability, fundraising and strategic business planning all tailored to their specific occupational needs. Our scholarship program will allow artists with limited income to apply for scholarship to Artists in the Marketplace, Ignite or Website Bootcamp to attend class at no cost to them. 

Why do artists need business training? 
We believe that small business drives economic growth, and by educating and emboldening artists to think of themselves as arts entrepreneurs, we strengthen the entire city. As creative professionals flourish in their careers, their wages rise, more jobs are created, more businesses succeed, more people are able to buy homes, and more neighbors are able to invest in their community. Professional development isn’t just good for artists; it’s good for Atlanta:

National data shows that artists who receive business development career training have a greater overall earning capacity than artists who don’t.

In the state of Georgia, over 21,000 creative businesses employ over 92,000 creative professionals. A majority of those businesses are concentrated in the Metro Atlanta area. ·     

C4 Atlanta is the premier resource for career development for artists in Atlanta. Last year alone, we serviced over 1,200 artists through training and career building resources.      

Without our scholarship program, many of our students in greatest need of our education would not be able to receive the services we provide. Give today to support the future of art(ists) in Atlanta!
