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
