Captured for Creatives


Running from January - March 2022


In person and online

Captured for Creatives will help you develop the personal and business skills that you need to develop your creative business

This programme does require you to commit to four workshops, 1 face to face and 3 online, but it is not time away from your business – it is time spent developing yourself and your business.

You will be part of a cohort of 6-8 small enterprises and we will pair you with a manager/mentor from a larger regional organisation after your first workshop. The majority of your Captured for Creatives time will be focused on harnessing the skills and expertise of your ‘manager/mentor’ to help you develop a better understanding of your opportunities and needs, and how to address challenges you face in achieving your aims, but you will also have plenty of time for peer-to-peer learning.

Workshops will run on the following dates:

  • Workshop 1 Thursday 20th Jan 9.30am – 1pm – Online by Zoom
  • Workshop 2 Thursday 3rd Feb 9.30am to 12.30pm – Online by Zoom
  • Workshop 3 Thursday 17th Feb 9.30am to 12.30pm – Online by Zoom
  • Workshop 4 Thursday 10th March 9.30am to 12.30pm – Online by Zoom
