Business Start-up Skills for Creatives

A great short course in how to set up in business in the creative or cultural industries.

This course is for artists and designers who wish to know about how to set up in business, and learn about the benefits of becoming self-employed. Did you know for instance that you can be employed and be self-employed at the same time? Did you know that if you sell work or need to gain commissions or run workshops on an ongoing basis you need to gain legal trading status? But don't panic! This course will give you an overview of where to find sources of support, how to write a business plan, gain funding, and identify a market for your artwork and skills. Other topics covered include raising awareness of legal issues, how to keep records, financial matters, taxation, and invoicing.
