Skill-focused workshops to follow Business of Art taster sessions
After the engaging Business of Art sessions, we are now planning a series of skill-focused workshops which are set to take place in Huddersfield and Sheffield.
These are to follow the taster sessions delivered by Magdalen Bartlett, an arts manager & creative business advisor, who has provided her mentoring to potential and current artist-associates and put together engaging sessions with interactive exercises and a practical checklist, all designed to locate areas which most of the artists struggle with professionally.
Based on your feedback, the topics we will be covering in the upcoming workshops are:
Tax, book-keeping and accounts, sole trader or business, creative business models, contracts & invoices
Marketing, promoting & networking yourself..on social media & more
Income from teaching your skills to others: effective teaching styles, session planning, group work & 1:1 tuition. Approaches, leadership, pricing, union rates, membership associations, tuition fees, insurances.
Fundraising: writing bids, collaborating together, approaches to crowd funding, getting information on funders
Creativity: personal & professional, motivation & maintenance. How to keep going creatively and manage time & energy. Well-being, therapy, support groups.
