To celebrate the launch of the new School for Creative Startups course in our hometown of Sheffield, we’re going to be joining them at a taster event specifically designed for newly established and aspiring creative entrepreneurs this week.
So this Thursday 23 October we’ll be at the Sheffield Tap from from 6.30pm, where Folksy captain James Boardwell will be talking about how to build a handmade business, and give his take on being a creative entrepreneur, including the ups and downs of running your own creative business. After this, there will be a Q & A session led by Ellen O’Hara, head of curricula at the School for Creative Startups.
This is a free event, but space is limited so you’ll need to book your place in advance here.
Or if you can’t make that, join Doug Richard, School for Creative Startups founder and former Dragon (plus regular contributor to this blog), on Thursday 20 November from 7.30pm, as he takes on the challenge that is PechaKucha Sheffield Vol#16 with the theme ‘Pushing the Envelope,’ exploring what drives those who see the world differently, take risks and forge new frontiers at the Foundry, Sheffield Students Union. Tickets for this event cost £6 and you can book them here.
If you want to be one of 100 aspiring creative entrepreneurs in the inaugural class of the School for Creative Startups Sheffield, there is lots more information and details on how to apply here. Applications are open until 30 November.
