The SAVVY experience
The SAVVY Arts Venture Challenge is an immersive, experiential workshop designed to help musicians, performing artists, educators and others generate more income and impact. Attendees pitch arts-based business ideas, vote on favorites, form teams, develop business/financial/marketing skills, design a venture from the ground up, and compete for awards. Throughout this process, they develop invaluable, transferable success skills applicable to a wide range of arts careers and environments.
SAVVY is not about passively observing lectures but rather learning through doing. Coached by world-class faculty, participants work hard and collaboratively in a safe environment that fosters community, big ideas and getting things done. As a bonus, enjoy delicious Southern cuisine!
