BUSINESS entrepreneurs and owners have been invited to attend a series of career workshops next week.

Burnley Mechanics will be hosting a line-up of speakers and free workshops for artists looking to boost their careers and set up their own business.

The Fire Up sessions will include experts from a range of industries, who will reveal top hints and tips in developing a successful business.

The first two of a series of workshops will be held on October 11 and will cover topics on how to design a creative business and how to best promote it.

Other sessions in the series, which runs until February 2018, will navigate essential topics from fundraising and commission proposal writing, to contacting galleries and marketing.

Rachel Hawthorn, Arts Engagement Officer at Burnley Leisure, said: “Burnley is buzzing with creativity and ambition, and these sessions are full of information, advice, support and creative ideas for everyone.”
