We are looking for artist entrepreneurs to apply for our ARTSLAB incubator program! ARTSLAB is a platform for cultivating sustainability in the Arts that includes an Incubator Program, a Meetup Group, and a conversation online that explores #ArtsMeetsBiz. This program is a 4-month arts entrepreneurship incubator program for emerging and creative business leaders. It is designed to bridge the gap between two worlds, where #ArtsMeetsBiz, and is intended to help each participant achieve growth & sustainability.

Born out of a desire to bridge the gap between arts and business, Mathew Heggem, co-founder of Left Side Labs, and Emileena Pedigo, Executive Director of The Show Goes On Productions, decided to put their business minds together and create a program designed to empower artists with strategies for sustainability.  They started by offering a workshop through the Greenwich Village-Chelsea Chamber of Commerce, as part of Village Arts Alive, and led a classroom of 40 attendees through a workshop titled, “Thrival Not Survival: A Workshop for Startup & Emerging Artists.” The ARTSLAB Incubator program is the next step toward cultivating a business-friendly, sustainable arts culture.
