Creating a Creative Sustainable Business Workshop

It’s been a difficult year to plan and predict what the future holds. In this practical, thought-provoking workshop Patricia van den Akker of The Design Trust will work with you to focus on creating a creative business that works for you and your ideal clients. Through a series of reflective questions, visual exercises, group discussions you will be working towards a sustainable business strategy and action plan for your own business. You will be setting goals and identify specific activities to put yourself at the heart of your creative business, while managing both the creation of your work, your finances and your marketing.

This workshop is suitable for new creatives but also for (very established) creative businesses that want to create a practical and sustainable plan for their business.

Patricia van den Akker is the award-winning creative business adviser of The Design Trust, the online business school for designers, makers and creative professionals. Over the last 20 years she has worked with 1,000s of creatives, especially designers and makers. She regularly talks and writes about creative business development, and works with many organisations, universities like the Royal College of Arts and Central St Martins, as well as craft fair organisers and studio providers to provide practical live and online business workshops.
