Who you are

Although we use the word Artists generically, we mean you (and ourselves) – people using their creative skill and imagination to produce works to be appreciated for their beauty or emotional power, or to provoke a change in society or even just because we ‘have to’.

Whether you are an animator, body-painter, cartoonist, dancer, environmental sculptor, fine-art photographer, graffitist, hybrid-artist, illustrator, jeweller, or are  creating in any of the many genres of the Arts, we recognise that you each have your individual skills and passions.

However we all at some time face the same challenge – ‘How do I make enough money to enable me to produce my art the way I want to, the way I need to?’

The Auspicious Arts Incubator is a non-profit organisation that exists to help you answer that question in a practical way. If you are at the crossroads of your career and you are not sure which way to go, register for the free webinar.

How it works

Start by registering for the Free Webinar. Join us for an exploration of how to make a successful career from your art.

We have made that journey and want to share our knowledge and experiences with you, backed up by a series of practical steps you can take.

We can advise on obtaining grants. You may find that career-counselling, the Secrets of Success workshop or a one-on-one analysis of your career may be the most appropriate.

All this will be discussed and explored in the free webinar.



  1. Register for the free webinar
  2. Complete the artist questionnaire and let us get to know you and your arts practice (link to this available from within the webinar)
  3. We assess your questionnaire and see if we have avenues to offer that will help you in the evolution of your practice
  4. Pending assessment, we may invite you to a one-on-one coaching session so you can get some direct, practical advice for your arts busiess. During this conversation we can talk to you about different training options that we have available that may suit you.
