Workshops

Online workshops exploring practical skills for Freelancers in the arts.

These FREE sessions are designed to give you skills to help you navigate your own practice as a freelancer in theatre. The workshops cover a range of topics and are delivered by industry experts.

We know training can cost freelancers money. All our training, courses and seminars are free to access for arts freelancers and we actively encourage other organisations to do the same.

Where possible, we also offer subsidised spaces for those who would otherwise struggle to attend.
