Opportunity: Artful Innovation 2018 - fully funded business course for creative businesses

Published on Wednesday, 23rd May 2018

Watershed are delighted to announce that applications for Artful Innovation 2018 are now open. 

Artful Innovation is an intensive Watershed course for West of England creative businesses looking to identify and develop a sustainable business model to underpin their ideas.

Watershed works with artists and technology to explore new products and experiences. As part of this we want to ensure that people and businesses in the region are supported to become sustainable in a rapidly changing environment. 

We are interested in businesses with both a commercial and/or not for profit focus. Spaces are fully funded (usual fee of £3,250) and will bring together a group of tutors and mentors to deliver a range of creative business development modules to offer a new lens through which to understand their business. Teams will enter into a task based journey of learning, sharing, building and evaluating their businesses.

The theme is Future Content; we are looking for businesses that might be exploring the future of books and storytelling, immersive cultural experiences, game design or VR/AR/XR for the next generation of audiences.
