Join Dance4 & Farnham Maltings for an in-depth exploration of key business planning skills that can support you to create or strengthen your international strategy.
Through their caravan and Dance From England international programmes, the two organisations are collaborating on this opportunity to support independent artists and companies in developing the skills, knowledge and confidence to work internationally.
This free online course will lead you through key elements of business planning and take an entrepreneurial look at how you might achieve your aims. Suitable for UK based artists and companies working in theatre and dance with around 3 years of professional experience and a desire to work internationally.
Delivered over 4 weeks, this self-led course is made up of a series of practical webinars created in collaboration with Creative United alongside a written guide. Attending individual webinars is welcome but attending all 4 is encouraged.
For those who would like further support after the course, there is a limited number of opportunities to apply for mentoring sessions with Creative United business advisors.
Applications for mentoring will open on Tuesday 10 November. Attending all 4 webinars is required for eligibility for this element.
