Arts & Business Seminars empower business leaders to meet their greatest challenges through the artistic process and by better engaging Eugene’s vibrant arts community.
Each Seminar is focused on a specific business need and how the application of artistic practices or the engagement of local artists can meet that need. Attendance is limited to approximately 20 business owners and managers per Seminar to ensure lively discussion and personalized training.
Planned Seminars include:
- Creative Employee Engagement
- Artistic Approaches to Innovation
- Leveraging Arts Sponsorships
- Inspiring Workplace Collaboration
A team of practicing artists, creative business leaders, and instructors drawn from the University of Oregon and Lane Community College lead each Seminar to ensure a well-rounded perspective.
Participants come away with practical knowledge and concrete ideas for immediate impact on their business. We are also exploring the possibility of offering continuing education credits for attendees.
Working together, business professionals and artists can accomplish more than is possible individually, whether that is measured by revenue, employee attraction and retention, innovation, or artistic output.
We offer many benefits to our Creative Academy sponsors including speaking opportunities, logo display and complimentary attendance. If you or your company is interested in sponsoring the Arts & Business Creative Academy, please contact ABAE Executive Director, Kelly Johnson.
