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

The course combines The Prince’s Trust’s Enterprise programme with creative workshops and mentoring led by GCF. These workshops will provide emerging artists with advice to 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.

This year the course will be held online and will be a mixture of group workshops and one-to-one mentoring sessions. This is a new form of delivery for us but we want to continue connecting with new artists in Leeds so please get in touch if you would like more information. 

The sessions will all take place during the week Monday 10th - Friday 14th August 2020. A more detailed timetable will be available closer to the time. 

WHAT WILL BE COVERED?

We will cover a variety of topics including:

  • A chance to explore your artform and the context of your work.
  • Project management
  • Marketing and selling yourself as an artist
  • Taxes, pricing strategy and how to manage your money
  • Mentoring opportunities with professional artists

WHO CAN GET INVOLVED?

Creatives of any artform are welcome to attend! This course is ideal for self-employed and freelance artists at the start of their careers. Participants must be aged between 18-30.
