Artist:Entrepreneur Day is an artist-to-artist education programme from the Featured Artists Coalition (FAC) and CMU:DIY (CMU). For this special event, FAC and CMU are teaming up with Brighter Sound to bring the A:E experience to Manchester.
The A:E Day is a practical guide for early-career artists, explaining how you can grow a business around your music. Each edition is led by three of FAC’s role model Advocate Artists – this time Roxanne De Bastion, Femme and ShaoDow – who open up about their own artist businesses and describe their routes to success.
There will be a chance to speak to a range of industry experts, while CMU’s Chris Cooke will be on hand to present A:E Guides on revenues, rights, gigging, marketing and business partners.

This event is part of Brighter Sound’s Open Artist Series – a three-year programme supported by Help Musicians UK. Through a series of events, mentoring opportunities and showcases, it will support emerging musicians to make a career in music – encouraging and enabling them to become innovators in their own careers, and active contributors to a fairer and more sustainable music industry.
