From Emerging to Export 2019 Applications Open


Building on last year’s successful pilot program, From Emerging to Export is a professional development intensive that helps emerging artists and managers develop their business skills and learn how to export to other markets. Each participant is carefully paired with a mentor, receives one-on-one business support and participates in planning an out-of-town showcase. Throughout the eight weeks of the program, participants attend workshops focused on building skills like grant writing, tour planning, communications, branding, and financial management.

This year’s program is scheduled to begin in mid-April and we are still accepting applications. Application to the program is free! The registration cost for those selected to participate is $300 for OMIC members / $375 for non-members (includes 1-year OMIC membership). Funding assistance is available. If you are an emerging artist or artist manager interested in applying to the program, please send a letter of intent and CV to
