A 3-day, intensive, career development course specifically designed to give performing artists the skills to take their career into their own hands, and bring new creative projects to life.

Talent and exemplary craft make up only one part of the patchwork of skills performing artists and creative practitioners need to succeed in today’s world. Confidence, resourcefulness, resilience and being commercially savvy have become just as vital, whatever the stage of one’s artistic career.

This course is designed to help performing artists explore new creative projects, and to couple them with the business know-how to make them happen.Whether you are an actor, musician, dancer, producer, solo performing artist, or part of a wider ensemble, our aim is to take your artistic ideas as a starting point and to give you the resources and skills to bring them to life.

The course is structured as a series of personal impact workshops to help you:

  • Identify your ‘Unique Selling Point’ and the distinctiveness of your artistic proposition
  • Practice your ‘sales pitch’ and approaches to investment & fundraising
  • Develop a business plan, considering aspects such as finance, promotion & networking, marketing & social media
  • Gain access to the tools, resources and support to master the business side of things with confidence and clarity.

The course will feature an exclusive seminar and Q&A with a leading creative entrepreneur in the performing arts, followed by drinks and networking on the evening of Saturday 12 March.
