The Makers Program is pleased to announce the 5 creatives selected for the Spring 2019 cohort. The Makers Program offers local Black & Brown artists and makers the resources and guidance they need to build scalable product-based businesses. The intimate class size allows increased engagement and one-on-one feedback specific to their business needs.

Over the course of the three-month program, the Makers dive deep on fundamental business structuring elements with a unique approach tailored for artists. As they work directly with leading organizations and local industry professionals, they also gain a diverse network of peers.
