We’re super excited to be launching a programme of CREATIVE ENTERPRISE WORKSHOPS with our friends at Baltic Creative CIC – Designed and delivered by creatives FOR creatives.
As a social enterprise, Make CIC is always looking for ways that we can support our community of creative businesses, makers, artists and hobbyists. It’s no secret that the next few months are going to be challenging for our sector, so we want to make sure we’re doing what we can to help.
That’s why we’re launching a programme of Creative Enterprise Workshops in partnership with Baltic Creative CIC. These workshops have been designed with the local creative sector in mind and they aim to tackle a number of barriers that businesses and individuals may be facing when running a creative enterprise.
Each session is free to attend*. We don’t want to add any additional stress to creative businesses at a time when we’re experiencing uncertainty and potential income deficits.
We’ve brought on board a number of fantastic local businesses and creatives to deliver the sessions – bringing with them their expertise and local knowledge around each given subject. From selling and pricing your products correctly, to improving your online presence, this programme has got you covered.
Each session will take place in person at The Shed (meeting space) at Baltic Creative, 49 Jamaica Street, L1 0AH. Here’s what the programme is covering so far:
- SELLING ART AND CRAFT ONLINE
Thursday 29th September, 4pm – 5pm
