Beyond Corporations and Nonprofits: What Is an Artist-Led Economy?

Beyond Corporations and Nonprofits: What is an Artist-Led Economy? | Julie Chang Schulman, Stella J. Brown, Njuguna Gishuru, and Amy L. Piñon

This online conversation was centered on arts entrepreneurship and growing ecosystems of support towards a more human-centered creative economy, asking: How can artists not only survive but thrive while still seeking to transform existing systems? What are some common pitfalls and barriers to collective abundance under capitalism, and how can we better collaborate to mutually uplift others? Seattle filmmaker and creator of “AND OTHER OPPRESSIVE DYNAMICS” Amy L. Piñon, Stella J. Brown of Chicago’s Buddy, Njuguna Gishuru of People’s Economy Lab, and Julie Chang Schulman of Seattle Artists Coalition for Equitable Development and Forever Safe Spaces came together in this conversation.
