Creative workshop

At this challenging time, many creative businesses and organisations are looking to the future and considering how they adapt what they do. New enterprises are also looking to take advantage of new opportunities.

As part of the Unlock the City programme, join Victoria Moodie from the North East Business and Innovation Centre (BIC) to sketch out your business plan at this free online workshop, using a technique known as the Business Model Canvas.

This is a tool which can help you set up, expand or change the direction of your creative business or organisation. It’s a visual chart displaying all of the key elements you need to consider.

The key points covered include:

• Visions and core value of your business
• Business planning for long term goals
• Business infrastructure
• Finance
• Researching target market and reaching the right customers

You will also get the opportunity to discuss your plans in detail with Victoria.

This course takes place over two days with a session 6pm-8pm on Tuesday 18th August and Wednesday 19th August. Places are limited and you MUST be able to commit to both days. 


This workshop is for Sunderland residents or for those running a creative business in Sunderland.
