About this Event

Glug Leeds: Go Your Own Way

Cue Fleetwood Mac. On repeat. All evening.

Sounds great right?

We hear the stories, tips and tricks from seasoned creatives and independents who have taken the plunge and made it on their own by starting freelance life or created growing businesses. How you can take their advice in your own creative life and avoid some of the pitfalls they fell into. We’ll also hear from independent creatives who have decided to rejoin the world of full-time employment and what it was like to re-adjust to that life.
