New Creative Future


Creative Future aims to inspire aspiration and artistic excellence amongst ‘marginalised’ artists and writers (those experiencing mental health issues, physical or learning disabilities, homelessness, substance misuse, long term unemployment or offenders, ex-offenders refugees or the elderly).


They have several upcoming workshops that may be of interest in terms of developing your artistic/writing practice, or marketing your work …


Creating Your Own Website

This course will teach you how to create an online portfolio or examples of writing that can be viewed from anywhere in the world using free and easy to use software. By the end of the course you will have your own website and know the basics of how to maintain it.

Cost: £20 (£10 concessions) for whole course

Dates: 18, 25 September, 2 October 2013, 1 – 4pm

Where: Whitehawk Library, Brighton


Applying for Grants

Want to find money for your own artistic development, to put on an exhibition, or run a creative group? Learn the basics of applying for grants and tips on where to look during this one day workshop. It will cover what funders are looking for, points to cover in your application and a one to one consultation to discuss ideas you want to seek funding for.

Cost: £15 (£7 concessions) for workshop

Dates: 16 October 2013, 10am – 5pm

How to Write a Blog

An online blog is a great way to develop a web presence, enlarging the audience for your work. This course will teach you how to set up an online blog, how writing for a blog differs from other types of writing and how to develop an online ‘profile’  – either to promote your work, keep a diary of your creative journey or share your reviews and opinions of wider cultural events, exhibitions and publications.

Cost: £15 (£7 concessions) for whole course

Dates: 17, 24 September 2013, 2 – 5pm

Where: Whitehawk Library, Brighton


Using Social Media to Promote Yourself

Facebook, Twitter and blogging are invaluable for promoting your work. YouTube, Flickr and other platforms work as great online galleries and portfolios. This workshop will demystify and support you to start to master these online tools and give you an insight into using them as marketing tools, through creating and measuring your own campaigns.

Cost: £15 (£7 concessions) for whole course

Dates: 22, 29 October 2013, 2 – 5pm

Where: Whitehawk Library, Brighton
