Arts business workshops return to Wellington
In association with The Biz Centre, creative enterprise proponents ARMS Ltd are offering four FREE sessions of a three-hour workshop on marketing and promotion designed for the creative and artistic sector.
The fully subsidised interactive workshop - Get Bizzy and Make Some Noise! - is ideal for anyone working in the creative industries (music, art, performance, design, writing) who thinks they need more business smarts, or for anyone about to pursue an artistic career.
In a fast-paced, humorous and interactive 180 minutes, participants find out how to boost profitability and promote themselves and their work in the local, national and international market.
The ARMS workshops are designed for visual artists, performers, musicians, writers, designers and other individuals wanting to boost their income and develop long-term sustainable careers in the creative industries. The interactive workshops use participant experiences, case studies and audience participation, with a focus on FUN!
Here's what some satisfied participants have said about our workshops:
"I've been waiting for this kind of workshop for three years," - Palmerston North silversmith
"You MUST attend this workshop!" - experienced Wellington writer
"Opened my mind to many great ideas and common sense concepts. Great speakers - my eyes never glazed over once!" - New Plymouth artist and gallery worker
