Creatives Peer Support Group - Crieff

Artists, makers, writers and other creatives often don’t associate themselves with the word business. Although many of the challenges are the same as other sectors' e.g. accounts, social media presence and selling skills there are also a number of issues very specific to the work of this group.

This initial Creatives Peer Support Group in Strathearn, facilitated by GrowBiz, is to discuss some of the opportunities and problems you all share. The CPSG is informal and confidential and provides a supportive forum for creatives to allow the sharing of information, experiences and of ideas for potential collaborations. If this pilot is something you feel is beneficial we can discuss continuing on a semi-regular basis covering topics you identify to be of interest.

For the first meeting the discussion points will include:

·         A discussion focused on Opportunities, Challenges and Ideas

·         The group and how you would want it to develop

·         Identifying some topics of interest for future meetings which could include: Practicalities of selling work – pricing, marketing, promotional materials; Copy writing for press releases, gallery proposals, submissions; Collaborative projects: commissions, exhibitions, workshops, tool share, bulk buying of art materials; Artists insurance, rights, contracts etc; Funding.
