Resource Guide

This resource guide has been put together to help you the artist in your journey as a self-employed artist. Over the years, speakers, faculty, and other artists have contributed resources within the guide. Resources are grouped into: State Art Agencies, Regional Art Agencies, Arts Organizations & Support, Business Resources for the Arts, Web Resources, Books, and Blogs. Some of the resources have fees attached to their services. Always be cautious before paying anyone for a service. This guide is put together by Self-Employment in the Arts which is housed at North Central College. It is free for all attendees of our SEA associated conferences.
