Early Xmas Present For The Artists Of Wellington

PRESS RELEASE

Early Xmas present for the artists of Wellington

ARMS and WACT are holding a series of FREE workshops about the arts and business from next Monday, November 24 through to Friday 12 December.

Artists and those involved in the arts industry will be able to learn how to build an audience and increase income through simple business practices. The sessions are focused on practical knowledge and tools to boost careers, presented in a fun environment by people who know both sides of the arts/business fence.

ARMS is an organisation founded to raise the level of arts enterprise in New Zealand by bringing business smarts to artists and showing them ways to make cash flow for their passion.

WACT (Wellington Artists' Charitable Trust) was formed to foster the development of the freelance artistic talent that makes Wellington the Creative Capital. WACT provides production and infrastructure support through its purpose-built rehearsal room, production and office facilities in its Cable Street Studio.

All workshops are FREE but are limited to 20 people per session and will be held from 12pm to 4pm at the rehearsal rooms of WACT on the first floor of 44 Cable Street (above Tory European, opposite Te Papa), phone 385 0192.
