Business Planning for Artists and Creatives

18th January 2018 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm

What often goes unnoticed in the struggle to “make a living” from doing creative work is the responsibility to both artist and entrepreneur. Not only do you spend your energy and time developing your talents, finding inspiration, and working as an artist, but as a freelancer you are also required to run a business.

If you have expectations of having a successful career as a professional artist you will have to do the same. Moreover, many funding and investment organisations will want to see your business plan, which this workshop can help you to develop.

Not only will you go through each step with a creative business professional but you will also get access to fantastic tips and advice and get the opportunity to discuss in small groups how you can develop your creative business.

This workshop is delivered by Culture+ Business Developer, Andrew Knutt, who has over 15 years working in the creative industries, is a qualified business advisor, and heavily involved in the art and creative industries scene.

They please ask that you bring:

-Pen and paper
-Should you wish to bring some images of your work please do
-Laptops and iPads are welcome but not essential
-If you are a Sole Trader please bring your Unique Tax Reference Number, if you own a registered company/organisation please bring your registration number.

This Culture+ workshop is specifically for artists and creative practitioners based in Dorset.

This event is free.
