Native Arts Cohort

Potlatch Fund will not be sponsoring a 2016 Native Arts Cohort. Please visit this page next year when programming is updated.

The Native Arts cohort includes two convenings and eight webinars that focus on developing skills in financial literacy specific to an artist’s needs in competing or entering the art market. It focuses on helping the artist in developing an understanding of marketing principles and setting a fair market price for wholesale and retail markets. An important aspect of the cohort model and an intention of this program is peer knowledge sharing and developing or strengthening relationships with other artists and nonprofits.
