DIGITAL | Freelance Five

No matter where you are in your creative career, the Freelance Five workshop is the fastest way to learn the basics of running a freelance and/or creative business. Find out the five top issues that all creative businesses face (a hint: set up, time management, money, marketing and more!), and learn how to navigate your way around those challenges in one fun and interactive learning experience.

Come along if you are a creative of any level – from recent graduate or curious hobbyist to a freelancer or an established arts practitioner.

This workshop is open to anyone who lives, works, studies or plays in the City of Ryde.

  • Lifetime access to a dedicated Dropbox folder full of additional resources and workbooks to help continue the learning after the workshop is over;
  • Access to additional free webinars to supplement the material covered in the workshop
