Crash Course in Producing
With Ameena Hamid
Spend three sessions learning about what goes in a producer’s toolkit. We’ll cover everything from what goes into a show from page to stage, branding your production company or yourself as a producer and honing your producing style. In week one, you’ll learn about starting out and setting up as a producer. Week two will cover money and production from Arts Council bids to investment. Finally, week three will cover working with artists, buildings and teams.
You’ll also get a selection of useful resources and templates to help you put into practice what is covered in the sessions.
