When Art Is Your Business: A workshop on becoming a sole proprietor
Creative entrepreneurs - fine artists, authors, poets, comics, storytellers, stage, dancers, production experts, musicians and others - across Detroit are struggling because small business help that is bailing out many small companies do not always help those who work alone. To help creative entrepreneurs become sole proprietors and teach them to handle their business, the Detroit Office of Arts, Culture and Entrepreneurship hosted a virtual forum with a panel of community leaders to offer guidance. Panelists include Christine Coady Narayanan, President and CEO, Opportunity Resource Fund; Dimitrius M. Hutcherson, Executive Vice President First Independence Bank; Justin Erickson, Program Manager, Detroit Neighborhood Entrepreneurs Project University of Michigan; and Krysta Pate, Programs Director Community Reinvestment Fund, USA.
