What is E-Velop?
Art is dependent on the development of skills. Sustainability in a career is dependent on Evolution: growing amidst unstable industries and and adapting to an apathetic society.
Making music careers sustainable.
Music has its unique challenges, but when trying to turn passion into a primary source of income, the same obstacles appear across all business. During the E-Velop Incubator, an extension of the ARTSLAB program, we will define the hurdles singer/songwriters face and explore how to conquer them using non-traditional and sustainable methods.
Success can not exist in a vacuum.
Collaboration is essential in music and business. Participating in the E-Velop Incubator means sharing opinions and building solutions with fellow singer/songwriters, within the basic principles of inclusion. It's a supportive environment designed to build personal brands while cultivating sustainability. Contribute your ideas as we re-construct the future of the Arts one artist at a time.
The E-Velop Incubator will accept 10 – 15 singer/songwriters to participate in a four-week think-tank aimed at making music careers more sustainable for artists. The group will receive basic training in business principles and exposure to entrepreneurial strategies relevant to a career in the Arts.
Each singer/songwriter will also be encouraged to write a song during the program and present it at a final evening of performances judged by a panel of guests from NYC and Chicago.
Incubator topics include:
What makes music timeless?
Does quality music have to come from adversity?
How do you adapt to changing markets without compromising your Art?
