Start a Puppet Company

1 Sunday 15 April 2018 / £60 (£54 conc) / BUSINESS

‘A REALLY INFORMATIVE COURSE AND WELL-STRUCTURED, I FEEL I HAVE THE BEGINNINGS OF AN ACTION PLAN.’

‘INSPIRING, ENTHUSING AND USEFUL.’

Are you interested in setting up shop independently as an artist, educator, trainer or using puppetry some other way, but wondering where to start?  Join us for a fun-packed crash course in the different frameworks and models for setting up your own puppetry business.  We’ll spend time imagining your Mission and translating this into clear aims for your work; think about Partners and where your work might go; explore Money – how you make it and what to spend it on through fund-raising and budgeting; and investigate Legal Structures – their possibilities and parameters.

This one-day process will leave you feeling focused and empowered to make the work you want, the way you want to.

Led by Beccy Smith who is a producer, writer and BPS founder member. Beccy has worked as a writer, trainer and producer with many companies around the UK, including providing busyness and creative mentoring to a range of artists when running PCT, the national development agency for puppetry.
