Writers, actors, directors and all artists need producers if their work is ever to be seen by an audience. So what can you do for your career while you’re waiting to be produced?
Sometimes you’ve just got to jump in and be more than an artist to make theater happen.In this groundbreaking half-day workshop we will look at how artists can successfully take on the challenging role of producer to generate their own opportunities. The ones who are most successful have to master a range of business skills, don a variety of hats and learn to be an expert juggler. “I’m just an artist” no longer cuts it when you make the move from page to paying audience. Learn to view your creative work from a business perspective, understand the need to think differently and make smarter choices, not only now but for the future of your show, and your brand. It all seems a little overwhelming at times, but we will break it down into easily digestible bites. When you know what you’re doing, it can actually be fun and fulfilling.
