City of Bloomington Creative Placemaking in partnership with Artistry would like to expand the capacity of local artists by providing Bloomington artists and culture bearers with free printed workbooks: Work of Art: Business Skills for Artists curriculum and the Handbook for Artists Working in Community by Springboard for the Arts.

These workbooks provide core business skills to artists in all disciplines and guidance on extending your artistic practice to work in and with the community. Learn more about the workbooks.

A limited number of workbooks are available. This offer will be first come, first served. If there is a high demand, we will consider offering again in the future. These free workbooks are available to Bloomington residents only.

Please fill out the form below. We will mail the workbook(s) to you. You may be contacted in the future to help us understand how helpful the workbooks were to you.
