In 2003, Creative Capital launched the Professional Development Program (PDP) to share with a broad community of artists some of the tools and strategies for improved self-sufficiency that were initially developed for grantees. Since then, PDP has refined these methodologies and developed new ones, which it has shared with more than 3,700 artists in more than 50 communities around the country. PDP presents a variety of weekend, one-day and evening length workshop offerings in self-management, strategic planning, fundraising, web strategies, verbal communication and promotion.
The artist-centered approach recognizes that an artist’s career plan must stem from his or her own goals and aspirations. Workshop structures and pedagogy are designed to deliver timely and accurate information while nurturing a community of artists who validate each other's work and provide a context to share resources through peer learning.
