Turning your Art into a Business hosted by Caroline Jones
This session explored turning your art into a business and becoming an entrepreneur, looking at the ‘creative graduate’ and linking this to the ‘creative business’.
Caroline made her audience aware of the relevant funding and options for starting up a business in the Art sector. The funding comes from the European Union Regional Development Fund.
What our student attendees had to say…
“I found the session very useful as I was enlightened with the key aspects of using art as part of a career. I like that all the information in the PowerPoint was given to us with all the websites and connections”
“What I found most useful was the information on how to set up an online professional profile and how this can enhance my work. I would like to set up a professional Instagram account”
