Ramping Up with PATTERN
The Indiana Arts Commission is pleased to present PATTERN magazine’s Fall/Winter 2021 issue featuring thirteen participants from the agency's On-Ramp Creative Entrepreneur Accelerator program.
On-Ramp educates artists and creative professionals in ten essential entrepreneurship and finance areas. It also provides ongoing mentorship and development of arts-based small businesses through a site-based workshop and a funded fellowship.
Sharing the unique entrepreneurial stories of Indiana artists in PATTERN magazine serves not only to elevate their work but to shine a spotlight on the thousands of Hoosiers operating arts-based small businesses.
Together with for-profit and not-for-profit arts, entertainment, and cultural businesses and organizations, these entrepreneurs are helping contribute to Indiana’s robust $8B creative economy.
Featured Artists: Korie Pickett, Kenya Ferrand-Ott, Rebecca Stockert, Sarah Wolfe, Dee Parson, Emily Guerrero, Erica Parker, Sam Love, Idris Busari,
Sunday Mahaja, Tahj Mullins, Evren Wilder Elliot, and LeAnn Price.
This opportunity to showcase On-Ramp artists in PATTERN was made possible through a first-time partnership with the Indiana Economic Development Corporation and the Indiana Small Business Development Center. The partnership also expanded the program from one central training site to six statewide and from 34 participants to 104.
