Creative Ambitions

Our first-ever freelancer skills programme, is focussed on practical and engaging content.  Delivered online, it will up-skill, re-skill and re-ignite your passion for your work.

How it works

Creative Ambitions features a curated selection of modules, live group discussions and access to a closed community space. We also have lots of bonus content for you to enjoy at your leisure.

Once you register for the programme, you will be asked to pick a date for a welcome session. In this session you will meet the facilitators and have an opportunity to ask questions and meet some fellow creatives.

You don’t have to wait until your welcome session to get started though, you will have access to all the video masterclasses and programme content right away. As soon as you sign up for the programme you will have access to the sessions and live discussion groups right away.

Feel free to go at your own pace. You might want to do every session or just some of them. It’s up to you.

Private group

Everyone who completes our Intake session will have instant access to the private Creative Ambitions group. Use this mini community to network, ask questions, share your thoughts, and access course-specific resources.

Is Creative Ambitions right for me?

This programme has been designed to support freelancers who have been adversely affected by the pandemic, including those in the performing arts, events and live sectors such as stage. If you want the tools to rebuild, refocus and re-energise your practice, we want to hear from you.
