Learn the art of business for creative souls
ARE you an artist aspiring to start-up up your own commercial enterprise?
Noosa Council is offering an ideal opportunity to learn the tricks of starting in business from arts industry guru Stephen Clark in a Set Up and Run Your Arts Business workshop.
This day-long workshop provides practical steps for artists just starting or in the early stages of their creative business.
Noosa Council cultural development officer Belinda Simonsen said the workshop was part of council's Grow Your Arts program.
"Noosa has so many great artists and we really want to help them develop their business smarts," she said.
"The workshop will include an overview of the arts business world as well as look at different business models. Artists will gain insights and learn tools to help them develop their profile and build their own small business."
The Set Up and Run Your Arts Business workshop will run from 10am-4pm on Tuesday, October 11, at CQU Campus, Noosaville.
"There are only limited places in the workshop and because Stephen Clark is so well known in the industry we expect them to fill fast," Ms Simonsen said.
"Artists who would like to attend should email one paragraph about themselves and their business to firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday, September 27, to apply to attend the workshop."
Council is also looking at offering more workshops later in the Grow Your Arts series in digital storytelling, how to find funding, and 'one for the musos'.
