Make your own Busyness Plan
Wednesday 9 January, 4–8pm & Monday 21 January 1–5pm

In these two 4-hour sessions, led by artist Rosalie Schweiker, participants will learn how to make their own ‘busyness plan,’ an alternative to a common business plan.

Who is it for?
People whose work might have a commercial element, such as a product or service, but don’t fit neatly into capitalist and growth-centred economic theory. It has been designed for artists, designer makers, and other creative and cultural producers, but anyone who is interested in exploring a different, artist-led approach to business planning is welcome.

What will you get out of it?
A busyness plan, tailored to your individual needs + useful methods to get organised, refine your ideas and brands, schedule your progress and evaluate the artistic and economic viability of your projects. We will also explore alternative methods of networking, draft our own terms & conditions and practice saying No.

When is it?
This is a two part workshop with sessions on 9 January, 4–8pm and 21 January 1–5pm. Participants will need to attend both sessions.
