We’re excited to announce the launch of a new partnership with Make CIC on a programme of Creative Enterprise Workshops – Designed and delivered by creatives FOR creatives. 

As social enterprises, Make CIC and Baltic Creative CIC are always looking for ways that we can support our communities. The next few months are going to be potentially challenging for our sector, so we want to make sure we’re doing what we can to help.

Make CIC has designed this programme of Creative Enterprise Workshops with the creative sector in mind. It aims to tackle a number of barriers that businesses and individuals may be facing when running a creative enterprise. 

Make has brought on board a number of fantastic local businesses and creatives to deliver the sessions – bringing with them their expertise and local knowledge around each given subject. This programme has you covered – from selling and pricing your products correctly, to improving your online presence!

Each session will take place in-person at The Shed, Baltic Creative, 49 Jamaica Street, L1 0AH. Creative businesses will be able to attend for free, following an eligibility check and registration process.
