Whether you want to set up a project or business, work with children and young people in range of creative settings or monetise musical and creative skills – this day is open to all.

Multi-award winning saxophonist Millicent Stephenson will provide a keynote speech, talking about her journey and how to respond to new opportunities as an artist through your career.

There will be workshops led by the Musicians’ Union, Sound Connections and Arts Council England covering employment; tax; fundraising; building a network; and balancing your creativity with running a business.

You can sign up for a one-to-one Development Needs Analysis session with an expert to support your professional development or share a project idea.

Plus hear inspiring stories and case studies from others, have the opportunity to network and build new connections.
