Announcing World Cultures Connect training workshops providing business tools for creative and cultural practitioners
Visiting Arts (UK), in partnership with The Africa Centre, based in South Africa, prepares for the World Cultures Connect ‘Creative Skills’ training programme for arts practitioners from the 11-13 November 2015 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and 17-19 November 2015 in Lilongwe, Malawi. The Creative Skills training programme calls for artists and creative practitioners looking to develop their business to submit an application to join us in November.
The workshop aims to increase artists’ and creative practitioners’ awareness and knowledge of the platforms, tools and opportunities that exist for communicating and promoting their work to local & international audiences and partners. The workshop will be an opportunity for participants to reflect on their current practice and explore:
• how to access local and international markets
• how to develop professional development, marketing and business plans
• the benefits of digital tools, networks and innovations
• new opportunities for connecting and collaborating with audiences and partners
DEADLINE: Applications for the training are now being invited via an online form (links below), which closes on Friday 16 October. Successful applicants will be notified on 22 October (Ethiopia) and 26 October (Malawi), and will be required to undertake short submission tasks once selected.
