Focussing Creativity in Derbyshire — upcoming courses

Here are the details of the forthcoming Focusing Creativity programme to take place in Belper for creative enterprises operating across the DDEP Sub Region. Following on from this we will also offer another three programmes running this year in Wirksworth, Derby and Ilkeston.

Each course consists of five jargon-free workshops starting with a one-day event and followed with four half-day sessions, all delivered by arts and creative industry specialists. The next one is being held in Belper at the Lion Hotel in Bridge Street, and people who are setting up or running a creative business are being encouraged to attend.

The workshops are:

  • Focusing Creativity
    • Tuesday, September 4, 2007
    • 9.00 am to 4.30 pm
    • The core one-day workshop of the programme looks at what drives you as a creative enterprise, your passion and mission, resulting in a realistic development plan and strategy.
  • Creative Essentials
    • Tuesday, September 11, 2007
    • Noon — 4.30 pm
    • You have the strategy — now, how do you market your enterprise? Creative Essentials gives you the knowledge and tools to develop a plan to get your message out there.
  • Creative Vision
    • Friday, September 14, 2007
    • Noon — 4.30 pm
    • You know where you want to be but how do you get there? Creative Vision gives you the skills, tips and practical know-how to research the best route forward to plan for your creative enterprise.
  • Creative Confidence
    • Tuesday, 18 September, 2007
    • Noon — 4.30 pm
    • This workshop builds on your ability to communicate the benefits of your creativity to customers and your audience.
  • Creative Capital
    • Friday, September 21, 2007
    • Noon — 4.30 pm
    • Financial management can be a headache but it’s one you cannot ignore. This workshop gives you the skills to manage your finances and control cash flow, rather than cash flow controlling you.

There has been a high demand for past courses and places are limited so people are urged to sign up as soon as possible for the September programme to guarantee a place.
