The Noblesville Chamber of Commerce is partnering with Nickel Plate Arts on a program designed to help artists become entrepreneurs. The "Art of Business" series connects artists with business experts to help with issues including finance, paperwork and insurance.
The next Art of Business event is set for Wednesday, August 17 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Noblesville Library. It will focus on how to set up a small business. The panel will be moderated by Noblesville Chamber of Commerce Chief Executive Officer Bob DuBois, and feature attorney John Terry from Cate, Terry & Gookins, LLC, Jean Peterson from the Alerding CPA Group and Bill Ferraro from Chas L. Howard Insurance.
Nickel Plate Arts Executive Director Aili McGill says she’s happy with the partnership with the Noblesville Chamber of Commerce, saying it "gives us the ability to tailor affordable classes so they can have access to important information that will help them succeed as small business owners long into the future."
DuBois says the series plays into the city’s community and economic development strategy. In a release, he said helping artists strengthen their business skills "will pay dividends for both the individual artists and our community."
