The fully subsidised interactive workshop - Get Bizzy and Make Some Noise! - is ideal for anyone working in the creative industries (music, art, performance, design, writing) who thinks they need more business smarts, or for anyone about to pursue an artistic career.

In a fast-paced, humorous and interactive 180 minutes, participants find out how to boost profitability and promote themselves and their work in the local, national and international market.
