Business Development for Artistic PracticeFebuary 2020 (previous)

Artists and designers often have to combine many different income sources such as teaching, commissions, sales to private customers, part time low-income jobs, and more to make ends meet. At Catch we use elements from classical business models and adapt it to an art and tech practice to ensure that artists can ensure a reliable source of income.

Developing a network

From October 2019 – July 2020 we ran a network for artists and designers working with technology. Each artistic career is different therefore our goal is to identify new business areas for each participant and thus create a more sustainable creative practice. The network is currently continued in the Rubberduck network.

The network participants met up every second week. For every meeting meet the participants had worked on individual tasks, which were then presented to the group followed by a facilitated joint practice where the participants provide feedback to each other.
