This fully-funded workshop is one of a programme of sessions for artists, creative practitioners and creative businesses/organisations who HATE networking but want to generate income from their art or craft.
Networking can seem daunting, but it’s essential to all businesses, especially creative ones!
In this insightful and engaging workshop, we will examine how a whole range of people from family to funders, curators to commissioners, collaborators to competitors, agents to audiences can contribute to the development of your creative enterprise and how, through careful management of your networking strategies, you can make the very most of what the relationships with these people can offer.
You’ll be introduced to the tools and techniques successful creative entrepreneurs use to build extensive networks and get who really matters on board.
By the end of this practical workshop, you will have:
- identified the tasks you need to complete to launch or grow your business
- considered who might help you achieve these tasks and what exchanges will take place
- developed strategies for gathering information about opportunities
- explored how collaborations can help you innovate
- learned how to widen your networks
- built a network map
- developed your pitch and honed your networking skills
This session finishes just before the preview of The Customs House’s Christmas exhibition providing the perfect opportunity to put some of your new found skills into practice.
This workshop is free, but places are limited so please book early to avoid disappointment.
