The programme of support, which will run for up to nine months, is not designed to teach you how to be creative but to provide you with the non-creative skills to help you be successful. And because we know that every creative path is unique, the programme is designed and directed by you.
We will work with you to create a personal development plan. This could include:
• Business and project planning
• Financial management
• Marketing, promotion and effective use of social media
• Writing a CV
• Funding and grant applications
• Networking skills and events
• Connection with a mentor or opportunities for work experience
The programme can be delivered one-to one or in a workshop with a group of like-minded people, or most likely a combination of the above.

3. We will then work with you for up to nine months to help you as you work through your Personal Development Plan. We will regularly review your progress and refine your actions to ensure you are on track to achieve your creative goals.
4. Before you complete the programme, we will develop an Exit Plan together. This is to identify what level of post-programme guidance you might need to give the best possible chance of success. We can provide a lower level of support for up to three months following conclusion of your bespoke Art/Work Programme.
