ARTpreneur Conference Returns For Its Fourth Year

October 31, 2011

The Cornwall Business Enterprise Centre is pleased to announce that the 4th annual ARTpreneur Conference will be taking place November 24th at the Ramada Inn and Conference Centre.

The event is open to all artists and entrepreneurs who are interested in developing new skills and insights on how to maintain a creative business.

“ARTpreneur brings together local artists with accomplished experts in the creative arts,” said Candy Pollard, Business Consultant. “We have received positive feedback from our previous conferences and we are confident that this year’s edition will be enjoyable and beneficial for attendees.”

The speakers for the 2011 conference include:

Bettina Forget
Bettina Forget is a gallery owner, visual artist, and art critic living and working in Montreal. Mrs. Forget is also co-host of the one-hour contemporary dance talk show The Movement Museum on CKUT Radio. Mrs. Forget combines her passion for science, astronomy and weather with her passion for art, to create exceptional pieces of work.

Merilyn Simonds
An accomplished author based in Kingston, Merilyn Simonds broke onto the literary scene in 1996 with the release of The Convict Lover, which was nominated for the Governor General’s Literary Award. Her latest book, A New Leaf: Growing with my Garden, has received praise from the likes of author Margaret Atwood and singer Sarah Harmer.

“As a Business Consultant at CBEC, I regularly meet individuals interested in pursuing creative businesses,” said Mrs. Pollard. “ARTpreneur is the perfect opportunity to explore art, business and entrepreneurship, in an informative and fun setting.”

Those wishing to attend should register early to reserve their place for the conference. Registrants can take advantage of early bird pricing by registering before November 10th to save on the conference fee.   The early bird fee is $40, while the regular fee is $50.
