Lunch & Learn Series

Our Lunch & Learn series is designed for artists and art organizations, offering knowledge, connections, and skillsets to help them thrive in the creative industry.

Artist Lunch and Learns: Professional Development Hub

Our artist-focused Lunch and Learns are part of our comprehensive Professional Development Hub supported by GMA/Firstpoint. This hub is dedicated to providing artists with the resources and knowledge they need to succeed in their creative businesses. Each session addresses the unique challenges and opportunities that artists face, offering practical advice and next steps. To join the Professional Development Hub visit the page online.

Arts Organization Lunch and Learns

In addition to our artist-focused sessions, we offer specialized Lunch and Learns for arts organizations. These sessions are designed to help organizations enhance their operations and maximize their impact in the community.

Highlights from Past Sessions

Our recent Lunch & Learn events have been met with enthusiasm. In a session led by Scott Rempe, an accomplished artist and marketing professional, participants gained valuable insights into effective marketing strategies tailored for artists. Scott’s expertise helped attendees understand how to promote and price their work, engage with clients, and build a strong personal brand. We also partnered with Campus Greensboro for a session titled “Optimizing Internships,” aimed at arts organizations. This collaboration provided crucial guidance on creating and managing internships that are mutually beneficial for both the interns and the organizations. Attendees learned best practices for recruiting, mentoring, and retaining interns.
