Free Workshop: Pricing for Creatives
Sat 25 March at 10:30 am - 12:30 pm
Creative+Business IN PARTNERSHIP WITH ARTS OUT WEST
Working out what to charge for creative products and services can be a colossal challenge. Where to even start? Pricing for Creatives is a practical workshop that covers the basics of figuring out the price point for creative work, including calculating costs and understanding what the market can bear. Pricing for Creatives is vital for anyone struggling to understand the value of their own work, and how to share that value with others.
