Day 1: “Dream it” kick started the Flying House workshops in Rotunda, Turffontein. The local artistic crew worked on identifying their strengths, weaknesses, resources and skills available to them, both personally and in their environment.

#ArtMyJozi in collaboration with Flying House are engaging the artist-participants in a skill transfer process to enable sustainability of their own artistic entrepreneurship going forward.

Flying House is an organisation dedicated to securing better opportunities for emerging independent creative and social entrepreneurs. Flying House has developed a 3-day personal development programme for creative and social entrepreneurs, that gives participants opportunity to improve the business aspect of their artistic practice. This capacity accelerator provides a minimum toolkit of basic know-how such as artist’s CV and bio, budgeting and invoicing, understanding customer service and an introduction to creative business models.

We will share more news as the program unfolds.
