~It may be the start of the new academic year for schools, colleges and universities across the country but there is also a large  percentage of people who have graduated from the above three recently or over a number  of years. With that being the case those individuals who are  creatively inclined would greatly benefit from a day of learning and exploring their potential as they go forward perhaps as artists, freelancers or other creative business practitioners.

On Wednesday 11th October between 10am - 1pm is an event simply entitled ‘ Fire Up - Designing Your Creative Business’. It is a workshop which seeks to concentrate on developing a business strategy to make the most of your creativity in relation to competitors and markets in a way that is consistent with your overall aims and values.
