Call For Artists – Build a Profitable Art Business in 6 months. Orientation Starts on July 2nd

Build a Profitable Art Business

Get ongoing business development on Zoom (and eventually in-person) with this 6-month business development program.

Goals

Help 300 artists actualize a profitable business system that complements their creative cycle through design thinking approaches, workshops, and ongoing exhibits.

Creating an incubator

After years of researching how artworks, I have come to realize that we are all different, we live differently, we have different business development needs, different advertising needs and different ways of doing things. 

I used the feedback from my research to design the ABLO and SMARTERai operational philosophies that borrow from proven project management principles. This incubation program is designed to accommodate artists and cater to their different business needs.  

 

However, the Hiscox report notes that online art sales may be benefitting from growth in other e-commerce sectors, as 73% of art buyers said they had bought other products in a similar price range online before buying art online. In 2017, that figure was just 68%. --- Source

ABLO + SMARTER

All projects at CreativeUTO go through 4 phases of development. These phases are alpha, beta, launch, operate. ABLO is part of the SMARTER system; both ABLO and SMARTER are based on project management principles and that will help manage the community and the projects involved.  Projects can cycle back to any of the 4 phases in ABLO. One such project is an online collaborative incubator for artists. We’re in the BETA phase of setting up the online incubator. 

 

BETA phase

We are in the alpha phase of the incubator, looking to gather a community of artists who will get to develop their business side through our workshops; where they will  get proper guidance to prepare a pitch deck for their organization detailing out  their value proposition, target market, sales funnel, and marketing plans.

 

While online art market growth may be plodding, one key trend has emerged: Big spenders—defined by Hiscox as collectors who spend more than $100,000 per year on art—are increasingly comfortable browsing and buying art online. The report notes that these big spenders are the most frequent visitors to online sales platforms, with 50% of them visiting multiple times per week—a big jump from the previous year, when just 38% of big spenders made multiple virtual trips per week to online art vendors. And those increasingly frequent visits are translating to more transactions—47% of big spenders said they bought art online in the last 12 months, up from 30% in the 2018 report. - Source

The Annex Art Party and other CreativeUTO events take place in venues mentioned in their respective event outlines and will be refered to as (TAAP7) moving forward. Most CreativeUTO events are family friendly, open to the public and all people. A point of contact will be assigned to you in your welcome package for situations that you feel require attention. If you require Toronto Police Services, please call 911. Please notify staff or volunteers at the info tent of suspicious behaviour as soon as possible.

In consideration of (TAAP) providing you with a display area, you fully understand and completely agree that you will not hold (TAAP), its board members, staff, volunteers, agents, contractors, affiliates and sponsors, liable for any bodily injury, mental distress, death, lost or stolen property or loss or damage to any property belonging to yourself or any other person in, on or about your display area or on the site . Artists must secure adequate insurance coverage protecting themselves and all exhibit material from damage, theft and injury for the duration of the show including setup and tear down. As a part of your contract you are responsible for any loss or damage occurring at your booth.

Changes to your Booth Location

You understand that unless otherwise stated, your booth fee only covers your physical footprint and does not include table, wall space or tent rental. All artists are responsible for renting or bringing their own or renting through a CreativeUTO assigned 3rd party. You acknowledge, understand completely, and fully agree that CreativeUTO and their site hosts, and associates, may need to make changes to the event site footprint with or without notifying you, leading up to, during setup and/or during the live event after you set up. These changes may result in your booth display location being moved to another area of the site footprint. If you have set up a display that the CreativeUTO or (TAAP) does not approve of we can ask you to alter and/or remove said display. You acknowledge this, understand, and completely and fully agree that said changes/alterations, with or without notice to you, would not give rise to any claim by you or result in the CreativeUTO or (TAAP) owing any refund given these said changes.

Weather

You understand and agree that in the event of severe weather conditions (TAAP) may be delayed, postponed or cancelled to ensure public safety and will not issue a refund or any compensation due to weather-related issues.

International Artists

(TAAP) accepts no responsibility for any delays or seizures at the border, including exhibitors being turned away due to inadequate paperwork, criminal record or other reasons.

Artists are expected to be loaded out and off the Square in a timely manner (90 minutes after fair close time).

Artist Must be Present

Artists must be present during the entire length of the fair and be there to represent the art community, themselves and their artwork. If you sell out your work, CretiveUTO asks that you return and are present for the remainder of the fair to represent yourself through engaging with visitors or social media in conversation about your work for the days of the fair. We take pride in putting the public in direct access with the artists who create the work.

Artists are encouraged to bring family, friends etc. to aid in booth management, allow them to take coffee, lunch and washroom breaks etc. However your associates are not to replace your physical presence at the fair unless (TAAP) staff has given approval. Approval will only be given in emergency situations. In the event of an unforeseen absence or emergency, the artist must notify (TAAP) staff in writing (via email), and permission to designate a representative to replace the artist is at the discretion of (TAAP) staff upon receiving written notice. Artists recognize that their absence may result in their booth being shut down or ineligibility for awards judging.
