£180 for 3 full days of professional training at Modern Art Oxford with Ellen O’Hara.
Saturday 27 Feb, 5 March and 12 March 2016 10am – 5pm
This 3-day workshop is designed specifically for artists, makers, designers and cultural producers. It equips participants with the tools, confidence and knowledge needed for entrepreneurial success. Rather than writing business plans that rarely materialise, you will use business modelling techniques to build a values-based business that fits in with your creative aspirations, social aims and financial needs. Lead by Ellen O’Hara, a pioneer in creative enterprise in the UK and internationally, this course offers a rare opportunity to move your creative business forward. In Workshop 1 you will explore the purpose, vision and values that underpin your practice, how these influence your work and what success means to you. You will spend time creating a long-term vision and developing a compelling offer for clearly defined audiences. In Workshop 2, you will learn how to tell the story of your business using the business model canvas tool. Participants will work in small groups to map out their current model, its strengths and weaknesses and identify opportunities for growth and development in a practical, visual and fun way. In Workshop 3, you will test and refine your business model using simple financial modelling techniques and approaches to pricing. You will then work in teams to create actionable plans equipping you with a clear strategy for the year ahead. Here’s what previous participants at Modern Art Oxford said about the course: “It was refreshing to be coached by someone who understood the culture of creative enterprises and gave us appropriate tools to develop our businesses. Draw your business: what a great approach!” “I found the opportunity to meet other practicing creative people from different backgrounds very helpful.” “I felt the course represented excellent value for money and was well worth the time out from a busy schedule.” “The workshops were relaxed, engaging and fun, but also very inspiring and productive.” “I really loved the course – it has been incredibly useful. I have found all the links to other resources, websites and video clips very helpful too.”
