Arts Council Presents the SmArts Workshop Series

The Arts Council of Greater Lansing created the SmArts workshops in response to member needs and as part of the strategy for the Cultural Economic Development Plan for Greater Lansing’s Urban Center.  Providing educational and networking opportunities for the creative workforce in Greater Lansing are an important part of the Arts Council’s mission to “lead, advocate for, and advance arts and culture in the capital region.” 


The Arts Council is partnering with local business professionals to provide workshops on topics that help the creative workforce to build businesses, careers or skills in the arts.  This is the second year of the workshop series and Michigan State University Federal Credit Union is the new Title Sponsor, which allows some of the workshops to take place at their new Downtown Lansing Branch in the beautiful second floor Community Room.  The workshops are part of the Arts Council’s new SmArts Program: A Professional Development Program for Creatives that provides educational opportunities, networking, funding and promotion.


Workshops are open to the public for a small fee and registration is online.  December 8th from 10am-12pm attorneys fromLansing law firm, Kordenbrock & Associates, P.C., will present about basic issues in intellectual property including copyright, trademark and fair use.  Please join us and bring your
