This hands-on workshop is a collaboration between Louie Gong (Nooksack), founder of Eighth Generation, and the Smithsonian's National Museum of the American Indian. It highlights Louie's Mockups (www.getmockups.com) as case study for exploring critical issues in Native arts entrepreneurship. With purposeful attention to identity and culture throughout, we will discuss the process of taking an idea from initial conception through prototyping, manufacturing, and online marketing. Participants will have an opportunity to share their project ideas and receive constructive feedback from the group. Our goal is to encourage Native artists and entrepreneurs to explore innovative, values-based art and business projects.
