Arts Build presents the inaugural cohort of artists and entrepreneurs in the Periscope CHA Pitch Night and Artist Entrepreneur Showcase. The event takes place on Wednesday, May 1, at 6 p.m. at R.I.S.E. Chattanooga, 2901 Taylor St.

Since September 2023, 23 artists have participated in the Periscope CHA artists entrepreneurial program through ArtsBuild. The program culminates in a final pitch night for the top six pitch presenters and an Artist Entrepreneur Showcase with expo booths from each artist presenting their artistic and entrepreneurial endeavors.

The evening will begin with an hour of the Artist Expo booths, followed by special presentations from the top six Artist Entrepreneurs, live music, and food and drink available for purchase from the Windy City Eatz food truck. There will be $10,000 in cash prizes in addition to business and advertising services awarded to the pitch winners and the audience choice booth winner. The event is free, but please use the Eventbrite link to get tickets in advance.
