Freelancing Masterclass with Cat Hepburn: how to ‘step off’ and carve out a sustainable freelance career.
Have you always wanted to be a freelancer but aren’t sure where to start? Maybe you’re a freelancer already, but you’re feeling a bit stuck? Or maybe you have a ‘real’ job and are unsure when is the best time to ‘step off?’
If so, then this is the workshop for you. It’s a fun and inspiring session on how to manage a Portfolio Career in the Arts. Award-winning performance poet, scriptwriter and educator Cat Hepburn (BBC 6 Music, Sonnet Youth, Edinburgh Fringe) will lead you through conversations, exercises and give her top tips on how to carve out a sustainable freelance career. We’ll explore how to get over our freelance fears, from valuing our work, to self-promotion and lots of stuff in between.
The training event is for practitioners working in participatory arts.
