The Artapreneurs™ Summit
is a unique one-of-a-kind event.

We are daring to open the conversation around the fine arts and creative industries and the fast-changing world of technology, entrepreneurship, and the emerging markets facing us all.

There has been a massive shift which is empowering millions of artists and creatives. We’re moving away from the ‘starving artist’ mentality towards choices which create sustainable incomes, provide meaning and purpose, and focus on the freedom to choose how and when we work as well as who we work with.

All over the world, independent artists and creative entrepreneurs are making thousands, 6-figures or even millions in your exact same industry. What if you could peek into their lives, even just for a moment? Your own success and growth to the next level is just around the corner. You just need some insights and a plan. You’ll learn exactly how it can and is being done.

Through the Artapreneurs Summit, she is bringing together experts from all sides of the subject of creative entrepreneurship to paint a better picture of where artists and creatives have been, what they’re facing now and where they’re going next.
