About this Event
The perfect combination between strategic and holistic, this workshop will explore the key aspects of developing yourself as a brand. We’ll touch on fundamental basics such as ways to build a portfolio and collate testimonials, the importance of and how to diversify your income streams, and developing a strategic network of collaborators and partners. With a background in ethical marketing, we’ll explore different offline and online marketing strategies to increase engagement and useful tools for upskilling and cultivating opportunities. Keeping people and the planet in mind, the workshop will also include practical examples of how to embed sustainable practices within our work throughout.
This session is suitable for creatives who likely have an already established practice but want to level up with valuable strategies and practical tools (i.e. emerging artists – intermediates)
