Creative Career Development

Ampersand Projects offer a menu of practical, hands-on workshops that enable emerging artists, creative practitioners and producers to take ownership over their practice, projects and career path. We want to empower artists to realise their ambitions.

We can deliver training and development modules on behalf of arts, heritage and cultural organisations, festivals and local authorities. Each workshop can be tailored to suit the needs of your organisation, wider programme or project and can be combined into part, full or multi-day workshops. 

Who Our Training Is For

Built on fundamental project management, communications and creative production skills, our menu has been designed with artists, creatives and producers in the early stages of their career in mind:

  • Emerging artists, creatives and producers aged 16 - 25
  • Artists, creatives or craftspeople setting out on a new second career (<5 years experience)

What We Deliver

All of our sessions are packed with hands-on activities that turn theory into practice and encourage participants to share their experiences and skills with each another. Our modules cover:

  • Project management and delivery
  • Showing work, exhibitions & production
  • Sharing work online
  • Running a creative business
  • Working with communities and heritage and telling stories

We can also develop bespoke training for your organisation.
