Arts and Business Series for the 7 Rivers Region in SW Wisconsin

**New Professional Development Program for Artists within the 7 Rivers Region**

The UW-La Crosse Continuing Education and Extension as well as the UW-La Crosse Small Business Development Center invite you to attend an informational meeting about our new professional development program for artists within the 7 Rivers Region. We plan to form 2 learning communities, one in La Crosse and one in Viroqua.

Free Informational Meeting Takes Place:

When: Monday, September 10, 2007, 5:00-6:00 p.m.
Where: Cleary Friends & Alumni Center, UW-La Crosse Campus

  • How over a 10-month period, we will explore together common issues of artist-run businesses, and learn to achieve financial success without sacrificing creativity

  • How this 30+ hour pilot program can empower you to take the next step in building sustainable art businesses

  • How you will be able to modify the proposed curriculum to meet your need

  • How you can influence place, time and duration of each learning community meeting

  • How our guest speakers will share their expertise with the Learning Communities

  • How to become a part of learning community
To attend or for more information: please e-mail Martina Skobic, Program Facilitator at or call at 608.785.8105.

I do plan to attend the informational meeting and possibly the whole series. If any other Wist'ers are going to come please let me know so I can look for you. I will post an update here. Martina will also email you detailed information, so please contact her as well. ~Knitsteel
