for brave creatives
Connecting programs to real-world needs of professional creatives.
We understand (and empathise with) the needs of brave creatives who are freelancing, building businesses and struggling with the challenges of making work and making money. Not only have all of our team members experienced similar hardships, but our workshops and advisory services bring us face to face on a daily basis with the real business requirements of creative professionals.
Organisations and institutions that need a practitioner’s perspective incorporated into their programs can save time and hassle by engaging us to provide expert advisory services on any program related to the practical intersection of business and art.
We have decades of practical experience working with artists in the engine room of the creative economy.
AWWW, SHUCKS YOU GUYS!
“By sharing our gathered industry expertise and practical experience, we are keen to help organisations to become financially sustainable through strategies including philanthropy, sponsorship, crowdfunding and the introduction of new products. The Creating New Income Toolkit has been developed in direct response to sector feedback that asked us to share best practice advice on how to build skills and capacity across these key areas. I’m certain this will be an invaluable asset across the state.”

CREATE NSW – NEW INCOME TOOLKIT
Working in conjunction with Generate, our director Monica contributed three sections to the Creating New Income Toolkit that was released by Create NSW in November 2018.
The Toolkit is tailored to creative practitioners, and small to medium organisations, and adopts a “how-to” approach for topics related to growing and developing income streams.
