Windswept Workshops want to help young, aspiring freelancers and artists to navigate the world of freelancing. Freelancing is often seen as a alternative and risky vocational route, and the only advice given is to excel in your chosen field. However, there is so much more to freelancing than just being a brilliant artist, actor, or producer, and there are so many ways to shape your freelancing career.
Our careers began during the start of a pandemic, so we offer a unique perspective on building a network, running events, and showcasing arts. We want to give you an honest and detailed insight into a first year the freelancing world and prepare you to begin a challenging but rewarding journey.
Emerging Freelancers is comprised of three stand-alone workshops: Building a Network; Finances and Funding; and The Pros and Cons of Freelancing. Each workshop contains personal insights and anecdotes from early-career freelancers; interactive activities; and, most importantly, practical advice. You can attend just one workshop, or you can attend all three!
