The Accelerator

A virtual 8-week arts business program that teaches the business side of creative work.


Through hands-on seminars and deep-dive labs centered around the Business Model Canvas you’ll learn how to make a business model for an arts project. You’ll work in cohort sessions and small group coaching circles, as well as generate short videos of your solutions between sessions. All of these approaches will help you to develop various aspects of business modeling for an arts practice, project, or venture.


  • Adaptable business model canvas for your art practice, project, or venture
  • Confidence and clarity on your vision, mission, values, and goals
  • A Certificate of Completion
  • Network of peers in your learning cohort



Five seminars & three labs for a total of 8 sessions. All sessions take place virtually over Zoom on Thursdays from 9-11AM PST from Oct 22 – Dec 17, 2020.

“The Accelerator program was rigorous yet fun. It helped me redirect my creative spirit towards entrepreneurship. Not only was I able to be in the company of a cohort of talented artists—from curators, to dancers, to musicians—but all of the facilitators presented highly informative and engaging content. I’ve kept in touch with my cohort and have even collaborated on two shows.” – Maddy Clifford, MADlines

“The Accelerator gave me the courage I needed to embrace business knowledge as a vehicle that can elevate, strengthen and push my practice to the next level. I learned alongside other visionary and incredibly talented artists, many of whom I remain in contact with. Intersection offers a support setting that understands and focuses on artist’s needs.” – Astrid Kaemmerling, The Walk Discourse
