Combining an interdisciplinary range of approaches and subjects, with an equally diverse range of research methods, PPS creates the opportunity for artists to explore their practice and its potential in public space. Creatives with a background in theatre, dance, circus, music, fine arts, architecture, digital arts, and graphic design are welcome to join this program.

Through this innovative web-based program, currently in its fifth year, the national nonprofit organization provides visual artists with business training needed to succeed as entrepreneurs and make a complete living through the creation of their art.
Deadline: 30 Sept 2018
To thrive economically, artists must fund and operate their businesses while creating salable work that still realizes their creative vision. Visual artists are fully capable of achieving these goals. They need access to the right resources and skills. This is the goal of CHF’s comprehensive 2019 Business Accelerator Program.
2019 Business Accelerator Program Artist Benefits
The program is a year-long, intensive course of business study for visual artists. It is designed to impart the necessary business training to succeed as entrepreneurs and make a complete living through the creation of their art. Fellows in the program receive customized business training, publicity, network-building opportunities, and one-on-one support to boost their careers and help make their businesses self-sustaining.
The program consists of broad strategic workshops and labs delivered by remote technology (a laptop or desktop computer is required). It provides participants with practical knowledge that is actionable in the real world. It includes information about how to develop a business strategy, build a compelling brand narrative, find buyers for their art, negotiate contracts, handle copyrights, communicate more effectively, and manage their finances and taxes. Each workshop is led by an expert in the pertinent subject matter. The labs are deep dives that include extensive time for Q&A. This allows Fellows time to obtain feedback on specific questions and hear the perspectives of their peers.
About The Clark Hulings Fund for Visual Artists
The Clark Hulings Fund for Visual Artists (CHF) is a 501(c)(3). CHF supports visual artists like Clark Hulings, a nationally acclaimed American painter who embarked on his career when he was 40 years old, abandoning a thriving profession as a commercial illustrator to (in his words) teach himself to be a gallery painter. He was fortunate that he could finance this transition himself with savings from his illustration work.
Hulings believed that artistic development can and should occur continually. He never stopped trying to become a better artist, honing his craft until he was well into his 80s. He understood that no matter how great the talent or strong the discipline, the door to success swings on financial pegs. Career advancement is predicated on an artist’s ability to seize and exploit opportunities, especially unanticipated ones. This is why CHF offers exactly this kind of support.
Hulings understood the challenges of being a representational artist at a time when abstraction reigned. For that reason, CHF supports visual artists regardless of the styles or movements in which they work. CHF’s intent is to help professional, working artists thrive economically from the art that they choose to create and to bring about the kind of comprehensive cultural change that fills our world with a wide variety of art.
