Welcome to BridgeLab!

We are here to INPIRE, EDUCATE, + ADVISE as you bridge the gap between college + your professional career.

What we do:

BridgeLab Workshops, Lunch Lessons, Subrosa Salons (new!) + special events like our Fireside Forum center on learning essential business basics to help you build a sustainable career as a creative professional, as well as sharing success stories from local working artists. We'll cover topics such as:

  • How to price your work
  • Understanding contracts + protecting your work
  • Promoting your work authentically (+ effectively)
  • Building a strong online presence
  • Taxes for Artists

We also offer one-on-one advising appointments to help you focus your vision, get resources, and build your own network.
