The Cornwall Business Enterprise Centre (CBEC) is pleased to announce that the 5th annual ARTpreneur Conference will take place November 13th at the Best Western Parkway Inn & Conference Centre. The event is open to all artists and entrepreneurs who are interested in developing new skills and insight on how to maintain a creative business.

“In the past we have made an effort to provide Keynote Speakers who are actually making a living by operating their own business based in the arts, and this year is no exception," said Candy Pollard of the CBEC. “We are very excited this year to welcome Steve Baker who will share his experiences of a long and successful career in entertainment."

Steve Baker was born and raised in Cornwall and has been performing professionally since 1988.  He now lives in the Toronto region.  Mr. Baker has performed at a variety of events and venues, ranging from large corporate functions to small town fairs.  His speciality is combining magic with laughter and has developed a number of different character-based performances (such as Doc Century's Travelling Medicine Show), to fit his audience.

“It will be exciting to hear how one of our own has become a very sought after performer, theatre and television consultant,” said Ms. Pollard.

This year's edition of ARTpreneur will also include a panel of successful local and regional artists who will share their stories of success and failure and discuss the ups and downs of operating an arts based business.  This one day conference is the perfect opportunity to explore art, business and entrepreneurship, in an informative and fun setting. 

“Success is out there waiting for us to seize it and move forward," said Ms. Pollard.  “Artists can and should learn from each other and there is no better way to do it than to spend a day together listening, discussing, networking and learning. This is what ARTpreneur is all about.”

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 5th to save on the conference fee.   To register or for more information on ARTpreneur please visit the ARTpreneur website. You can also contact the CBEC at (613) 933-0074 or by e-mail at entrepreneurship@cornwall.ca.
