BE SMART ABOUT ART
Founder Susan J Mumford personally experienced the need for support to professionals in the art world when she had a gallery in Soho, London. Seemingly no one knew of best practices (dealers and artists alike), and it seemed that everyone attended the school of hard knocks. She saw many people struggle emotionally, personally, physically and financially.
Susan wanted to do something to help people run successful art practices, and spent a lot of time working on a one-on-one basis with professionals in the field. Within just a few short months, she discovered that mentees' art businesses were already benefitting. After trialling the concept of Be Smart About Art for 6 months in 2012, she concluded that the industry was ready to move into a 21st Century landscape, and today's programme was born.
