For the third year running, the Geraldine Connor Foundation (GCF) have teamed up with The Prince’s Trust to deliver our Artistic Enterprise Course.

The course consists of The Prince’s Trust’s three-day Enterprise programme alongside two days of creative workshops led by GCF. This full week of activity will provide emerging artists with practical and helpful advice that will help develop professional skills crucial for working in the creative sector. It is important for artists to develop their business and communication skills alongside their own creative development and we aim to support them with this.

"I would recommend this course because it's a space that supports young artists and their vision and shows a realistic way of making it come true. 2019 participant
