Anders Petterson, founder of ArtTactic, joins us to discuss ArtTactic’s upcoming seminar. “How to Research Your Art Business Idea”. This is a 3-evening course occurring from September 12-14 in London.  Considering that we interview so many art entrepreneurs on the podcast, we thought you would enjoy hearing a preview of our seminar.  The course focuses on assisting art entrepreneurs with their business ideas.  First, Anders explains why ArtTactic is hosting the seminar at this time.  He cites the many ways in which the art industry is changing.  This includes the increasing entrepreneurship outside of the transaction based business models.  The increase in the industry’s size is addressed.  Equally the maturation of art as an asset class and the increasing development of technology, social media and e-commerce are addressed.  Then, Anders details what the course aims to achieve.   He also addresses what an aspiring or existing art entrepreneur can learn over the three evenings.


We have recently launched an online course based on this seminar series.
