Don’t forget to look after yourself: Wellbeing for freelancers

When you work in an area you are passionate about and are a freelancer, it’s easy to tip the work/life balance in favour of work and lose energy, sleep, self-esteem and confidence. In this workshop, Louise will explore what’s important to put in place and prioritise when you are a freelancer. How do you make sure you take as much care of your wellbeing as you do of others you work with?

2pm – 5pm:

Push it but don’t lose control: Managing risk for creatives

How do you make financial and creative decisions that manage risk well? This workshop uses real life creative scenarios to explore how to take calculated risks and understand where you need to draw the line. It covers subjects such as how and when to say no, understanding where the risk lies in collaborations and how to respond to opportunities.
