Come and learn from an early career artist about how they approach managing their time and making space for their creative practice alongside a full time role.

You’ll gain insight into:

  • How to grow your creative business alongside a full time role
  • Tips and tricks for making the most of your time
  • What’s worked, and what hasn’t
  • How to make a work plan that works for you
