Arts Business Clinic

Got questions about how to manage or build your arts group or project? 

Unclear about: Strategic Planning? Fundraising? Marketing? Risk Management? Budgeting?

Shunpike’s Arts Business Clinic can assist.

Clinics are generally held on the first Wednesday of each month (excluding January, August and October), from 6pm – 8pm at the Impact Hub (220 2nd Ave S in Pioneer Square). For a detailed calendar of clinic dates, click here.

Pre-Clinic SELF-Assessment

So we can really get to know you and your organization or project, all new Arts Business Clinic clients (or returning clients who haven’t attended the Clinic for 12 months or more), are required to first undergo a Pre-Clinic Self-Assessment. Think of it like an annual check-up. The Pre-Clinic Self-Assessment is a checklist that takes you through a standard array of questions designed to get an overall picture of your organization’s or project’s ‘health’.

With this information we’ll identify the most important issues currently facing your organization/project and be better able to match you with an Arts Business Clinic Advisor. ABC Advisors will have read your Pre-Clinic Self-Assessment before your regular consultation. That way you won’t waste any time telling your ‘back-story’.

Pre-Clinic Self-Assessment Checklists can be obtained by emailing Katy@shunpike.org

Consultations

Through Shunpike’s Arts Business Clinic, you can access one-on-one, 30 minute consultations with experienced Arts Business Advisors to talk about an important issue or challenge facing your organization/project.

Shunpike’s team of ABC Advisors come from a wide variety of backgrounds and can offer insights into a range of best-business practices. If you feel that your group or project would benefit from an ‘Outside Eye’, or could do with some guidance on a specific challenge or opportunity you are facing, an ABC Consultation can help.

ABC Consultations cost $25 (non-members) and $20 (members). Members receive one free ABC consultation annually.
