Sessions for regional creatives to grow their business

Facilitated by ArtsACTION the sessions will provide professional development opportunities.

The free program starts on Wednesday, April 21 and offers a six-part email resource pack, Zoom workshops, and access to a growing supportive network.

The workshops cover topics such as being market ready, working together effectively and developing digital communities.

Strathbogie Shire Mayor Cr Chris Raeburn urged creatives to participate as opportunities such as these were often limited in our regional arts community.

“Here is a great opportunity for artistic and crafts people to build their brand and connect with other creatives around regional Victoria,” Cr Raeburn said.

“Developing a regional arts network can give local artists added confidence to pursue their work.”

Coordinating the workshops, ArtsACTION has helped artists and creative souls with concepts as broad as marketing and selling strategies, branding and portfolio management as well as setting goals.

Councillor representative on Strathbogie Shire’s Tourism, Arts and Culture Advisory Committee, Cr Laura Binks, said artists looking to direct their vision and career, or who want to explore to bigger ideas, should get involved.

“From firsthand experience of doing this series of workshops last year, I encourage artists and creators to take advantage of this third series of free workshops which commence on 21 April from 10.30 – 12pm through to 26 May,” Cr Binks said.

“Our Shire is one of eight participating councils, so by joining in these free digital workshops you will be meeting like-minded artists from Gippsland to the hills.”

Bookings are essential.
