What is BOLD?

BOLD: The ArtCenter Symposium for Creative Entrepreneurs is a daylong event designed to celebrate and inspire a growing community of entrepreneurs from ArtCenter and beyond. 

BOLD convenes a diverse group of artists, designers, entrepreneurs and industry experts to deliver a series of presentations, lectures, and practical workshops focused on the future of creative entrepreneurship, freelance studios, design-driven startups and artist-run businesses and nonprofits.

BOLD aims to be broadly motivational while providing tangible skills and specific methodologies that can be applied to the pursuits of creative entrepreneurs as they continue to forge unique pathways and strive to redefine the world around us.
