Get stuck in! Two-day Creative Business Start-up Workshop, May 28-29

We’ve been passed some information about a free workshop, designed specifically for anyone thinking about – or in the first stages of planning – a creative business. It sounds like a great opportunity full of practical hands-on advice, all conducted in a group working environment.

The two-day workshop is offered free (funded by the European Union) and will take place in Shrewsbury on the 28th and 29th May, at the Gateway Centre, Shrewsbury.

The workshop is aimed at any creative individual based in the West Midlands, who is thinking about, or in the early stages of setting up a creative business (in arts, design or media). We will cover all the essentials around your values, marketing, branding, financial management, intellectual property, your legal structure (eg self-employed, Limited Company) and your networks.

The course is run by Percy Emmett who has extensive experience in supporting small creative businesses. Tea & coffee will be provided, along with copies of all course materials. Please bring your own lunch.

Places are limited and allocated by selection. To apply for a place on this course please register on the event booking site, here.

Any further queries please contact Creative Enterprise by email to or by calling 07557 425418

The Gateway Education and Arts Centre is a purpose-built and well-equipped centre used for courses, training, presentations, meetings and conferences. Details about the centre including location, transport links and parking can be found here Gateway EAC.
