Congratulations to the 10 outstanding artists and solopreneurs selected for the A&BC’s 2017 Creative Entrepreneur Fellowship. This is the third year of this nine-month program, which evolved out of our Artist Professional Toolbox program (2004-2014). More than 75 applicants applied this fall, and the finalists were announced in late November. The 2017 Fellowship kicked off with a successful retreat last month, and each Fellow is now deeply engaged in self-assessment and goal setting, working with their personal coaches and building their overall artistic practices.
