Artpreneur Ottawa is excited to officially launch the sixth installment of Ottawa’s premiere cross-disciplinary event for creative entrepreneurs. It bridges art, entrepreneurship and the creative industries, including visual art, film and music, to help solve the problems facing arts entrepreneurs today.
This year’s theme is Creative Infrastructure: Media + Management + Spaces. With a lineup of speakers from artists to media owners, professors and directors, you will be sure to walk away with a new view on how Ottawa’s artists rely on a complex network of infrastructure to propel careers locally and internationally.
