The programme includes –

12 engaging specialist webinars led by knowledgeable industry experts. Subjects are to be confirmed, but will cover topics such as audience identification and development, finance and funding, productivity, product development, marketing, collaboration, events and workshops, pricing, routes to market and legal matters.

3 1-2-1 bespoke mentoring sessions with an assigned knowledgeable mentor over the course of the programme.

6 live web-interviews with inspiring internationally renowned artists.

Online peer-to-peer support via our closed Facebook group and in-person networking.
