The BUSINESS of being CREATIVE
The BUSINESS of being CREATIVE will be a deep learning and development opportunity for early-stage creative ventures to build capacity towards sustainable creative careers which add positive social and cultural value to the city. The program will work with up to 20 aspiring creative entrepreneurs (as individuals or collectives) to support the development of the business side of being a creative practitioner.
What will this program look like? Workshops? Mentoring? Peer-learning? Real-life project experience? We imagine a program built on practical sessions with experienced creative practitioners, social entrepreneurs and business professionals.
Topics could include design thinking, business models, identifying 'unique' selling points and distinctiveness of artistic proposition, social impact, pitching, approaches to investment and fundraising, business planning and communications.
Please join us for the launch of the program, featuring a panel discussion about what makes a successful creative enterprise.
