CPD opportunities for the Arts and Cultural Sector

Why do people who work in arts and culture need business plans? How is Great Art and Culture created? Talent….Hard-work….Inspiration….Creativity.....Experience? Absolutely. But doesn’t it also need funding? And, often, audiences or participants? And don’t artists and cultural practitioners want to make a mark with their work so it reaches its fullest potential?

This is where a Business Plan comes in….but it can strike the fear of death into people, so Worcestershire Arts Partnership (WAP) is here to help.

On Wednesday 11th July, WAP is running a half day workshop in Worcester aiming to help you create a Business Plan. Book a place here: http://www.severnarts.org.uk/inspire-enable-empower

Our key-note speaker is Deborah Kermode, Chief Executive and Artistic Director of MAC Birmingham. Before this she was Deputy Director of the internationally acclaimed Ikon Gallery. Deborah will tailor her advice to a range of Worcestershire artists and arts/cultural organisations seeking to learn those crucial tips to creating a Business Plan which gives direction and can unlock funding.

Clare Purcell is Assistant Director of Meadow Arts, one of Worcestershire’s 5 NPOs. Since 2004, Meadow Arts has grown to become a leading curator and commissioner of contemporary arts in the region, also working across Herefordshire and Shropshire. Clare will talk about their approach to developing their organisation through the use of a Business Plan.

With a practical workshop, refreshments and free wi-fi, can you afford to miss out?!
