Creative Enterprise Course

The Creative Enterprise Course is a week-long practical programme to support creative entrepreneurs and encourage sustainable and resilient livelihoods. The course is designed for young creatives, from illustrators to designers, who are already confident practitioners of their chosen creative discipline, but would like to develop a portfolio and build skills to establish and grow a creative business.

Delivered by practicing freelance artists, it will teach you enterprise skills, whilst developing your creative network. You will have the chance to get to grips with essential marketing, finance and management skills, as well the popular Canvas Business Model technique. This ensures that you are able to manage the logistical aspects of your creative enterprise.

Creative Advice Bureau

Our 1-2-1 mentoring sessions are designed to help you figure out a strategy and make action steps for your creative ideas. We support visual artists to discover their personal style and personality, attract their ideal clients, create an authentic brand, understand how to create an engaging online presence, and identify the best ways to market their services. We’ll match you with a professional, who has made a living from their creative passions, so that they can share their experience and give you advice on how to do the same.

You might want a mentoring session if you want to:
• share your creative idea with the world
• build your personal brand
• promote your creative business
• sell more of the things you make or do
• get commissions or find employment
