Facilitator Call Out for Perth ‘Design Your Practice’, run by Cultural Enterprise Office

The Cultural Enterprise Office (CEO) has developed an 8-week evening programme called Design Your Practice for those embarking on a creative freelance career.

The aim is to ensure that creative people have the right skills for business; support for new projects to grow; effective transitional support between academic learning and industry, the opportunity to revisit and revitalise their practice and increased confidence in their ability.

Design Your Practice helps participants to establish themselves and proactively design their future. The programme was piloted in Glasgow in the summer of 2017 and is now launching in Perth (ahead of the Creative Exchange Perth Project). CEO is seeking a Perthshire based creative to be one of the facilitators. Our target audience is recent Art Graduates and more mature creatives who want to revisit their creative business fundamentals.

We cover the subjects of costing and pricing your work, marketing your services, planning and business structures, finance and administration. CEO wants to contribute to the network of creatives who learn from and support each other in Scotland’s cities.

The two facilitators will deliver the 8-week programme during weekly evening sessions from 18.00 – 21.00, to suit the working patterns of participants. The Perth programme commences on Tuesday 30 October for 8 weeks.

The successful candidate must have and demonstrate the following –

– An established and sustainable creative practice of 5 years minimum

– Experience in working collaboratively with individuals and organisations

– Experience in delivery and presentation as part of their practice

– Commitment to the development of creative industries in Scotland

– Commitment to equal opportunities in the arts

The total fee for delivery and preparation would be £1,000. The fee will be subject to enough participants signing up and paying for the programme. All materials for the programme will be supplied, but some marketing administrative work will be necessary.

Please submit your CV and two references to david@culturalenterpriseoffice.co.uk by Friday 28 September.
