Artrepreneur Alumni Spotlight - Miss Coco Murray

30 January 2018


Artrepreneur is a creative business accelerator program run through York Region Arts Council designed to equip independent artists, arts administrators and creative entrepreneurs with vital business skills needed for success across all arts disciplines and industries. By incubating artists of all disciplines in one program, this program fosters collaboration and the sharing of ideas, tools, tips and best practices, resulting in a well-rounded understanding of what it takes to “make it” as a creative entrepreneur.

We are currently accepting applications for Cohort 5 of Artrepreneur York Region, and wanted to share the story of a successful Artrepreneur alumni and her inspirational journey.

Miss CoCo is a dance artist, cultural arts educator, dance instructor, community arts programmer, researcher and social entrepreneur.  She holds a Sociology BA from the University of Toronto, an Honors BA in Race, Ethnicity and Indigeneity and is a MEd candidate at York University.  She is a 2013 recipient of the Canadian Dance Assembly’s ‘I love Community’ award that currently designs and implements funded arts projects for children, youth and adults.  She has presented at international academic conferences, taught workshops during her study abroad in South Africa and Costa Rica, and performed in Bermuda and Senegal.   Coco served as a Research Assistant for the Cultural Pluralism of the Arts Movement Ontario and is a contributing writer for The Dance Current, Canada’s dance magazine.
