Skilling Up

For Artists

Emerging creative practitioners can be faced with multiple priorities: developing their creative practice, building professional networks and establishing business management skills, often while sourcing additional income through a variety of causal employment outside creative industries.

Skilling Up is Carclew’s professional development series for emerging creatives, offering skills development, networking opportunities and supported employment that fosters the confidence and resilience needed to develop a sustainable and safe career.

A broad range of topics include:

  • Understanding the business of being creative
  • Creating a sustainable career
  • Locating financial support
  • Inclusive and safe practices
  • Marketing and networking

Established creatives, leading industry professionals, successful emerging artists and past Carclew alumni contribute to the Skilling Up program.
