The Arts Center of the Capital Region Announces the Capital Region Artist Initiative



For the past 55 years, The Arts Center of the Capital Region has been deeply invested in the health of the artists in our area. Five years ago, we realized a greater need for artist resources so our artists could develop professionally and advance their careers. At that time, we created a program called Nuts and Bolts which grew into The Business of Art.

We’ve taken feedback from our artistic community to find out what format and topics create the most value for our participants. We’ve realigned our intention to fit those needs and have created a new format called the Capital Region Artist Initiative.

There are two pieces with different end-goals for artists. There is the Artist Training Certificate Series for artists who want to get a better sense of their artistic intent, presentation of self, and business goals. At the end of this intimate program, participants will receive professional accreditation in a celebration and art share during the June Troy Night Out. The Critical Forum, the NYSCA Visual Arts Program, is an immersive professional development opportunity for emerging and mid-career artists.

These training programs will be free of charge and tailored to the unique needs and disciplines of the selected artists. Please see our website for more details and to apply. Funding for these programs has generously been provided by KeyBank and New York State Council on the Arts.
