About this event

Creative Freelancers Exchange

Are you a creative freelancer living or working in the Culture Mile area?

Would you like to exchange with other local creative freelancers, network and refine your skills?

Please join us! Culture Mile is hosting a series of online workshops & spaces of exchange for freelancers working in the creative and cultural industries to develop their skills, creative practice and wellbeing in our current situation.

COVID-19 has brought change, uncertainty and new ways of working for all sectors and we recognise this has significantly impacted freelancers in the creative industries. What have we learned and where are we now?

25 May Asking the Right Questions: Business Planning Tools: led by Wendy Foster, in partnership with Small Business Research + Enterprise Centre

Think through what your business might practically need to thrive, working your way through a business model canvas. Explore how you might adapt and support your work in these ever-changing times.

Business planning can seem like a mountain to climb at times, so this session will give practical tips to guide you through the process to make it straight forward. We will look at the Business Model Canvas which is a great tool that helps you consider the key elements of running your business. The ideas you put together using the Business Model Canvas will help you build strong foundations for your business. We will also introduce you to resources to help you answer questions you may have when forward planning.
