The TRADE STATION entrepreneur in residence program allows artists interested in starting their own business to realize a cultural project in a retail or consignment environment. Accepted applicants will go through a cultural entrepreneurship training workshop to build a business plan and then test that plan for six months in the TRADE STATION. 

**If you are interested in presenting your work outside of the residency program, please email to find out what opportunities are available.
