Are you an artist or creative looking to improve your business practices?

 

Sometimes it can feel like a minefield just navigating your business through online marketing, legalities, contracts, grant assessments and tax requirements. That’s why BEC Business Advice and Eastern Riverina Arts are teaming up to present “Creative Bites”, a series of intimate lunchtime business sessions designed to help you stand out in the crowd.
 

Over a six week period, you’ll hear from industry experts as we unpack the fundamental components of successful creative business practice and get you ready to take on some of the tricky every day challenges.
 

Each session will run for 1 hour every Wednesday from 11 September to 16 October and are designed for self-employed artists or creatives. Numbers are strictly limited to 12 and attending all six sessions is preferable. The six week program will cost $25 with lunch and refreshments included for all sessions.
