The Creative Entrepreneur Fellowship (CEF) is designed to accelerate the careers and practice of a diverse group of artists and creative solopreneurs. CEF is a customized professional development experience for 8-10 individuals selected through a competitive application process.
The program kicks off in November and runs through June. The Fellowship includes personalized goal setting, one-on-one coaching, skills-training seminars, and a stipend for business-related purchases. This is the eighth year of the program, which now has a dynamic alumni network of artists working across a range of media.
