Register for the Business Blueprint for Performing Artists! Registration closes Feb 21!

Did you know that your artistic career requires more than talent?

There comes a time when you realize your artistic abilities alone won't get you where you want to go. You need some business skills to add to your toolbox.

Do you:

  • Want to produce work, or to produce better work?
  • Formalize a collaboration between artists?
  • Want to create work for your community, to fill a space or take advantage of an opportunity?
  • Have a dream project you’ve been thinking about, but you have no idea how to start making that dream a reality?
  • Have an opportunity to use your artistic background, but need business skills to pull it off?
  • Have a teaching job that requires you to be a producer as well?

Your Ladders is an online school designed to help artists build ladders of understanding to get them over obstacles in their path, and to the next level of their career. The goal is not to make you an arts administrator. The goal is to give you the professional tools you need to deal with the business side of your artistic life.

My name is Julie Hennrikus. I fell in love with the performing arts in college, but I was never a performer. I wasn’t that brave. Instead I pursued the path of arts administration, and in my thirty year career I’ve walked many paths. I’ve taught arts administration on the college level for over ten years, and run countless workshops. I’ve also run an arts service organization, which gave me tremendous insight into the challenges both artists and organizations face.
