Outside the Studio

Take 2018 by storm with this new programme for Autumn/Winter 2017. There are two strands, covering the bases of theory, practice and practical support.

Professional Development Series

We will offer open sessions on Fundraising from Business to Arts and another on Press with specialist Stephanie Dickenson.

Alongside these open sessions, a select few participants will have the opportunity to workshop their grant writing and marketing skills with a variety of individuals with different perspectives.  These will be a tailored and nuanced professional development opportunities for those planning projects for 2018.  A call will be announced as well as details of the format of these workshops later in the summer.
