Doing it Yourself

  • presented by:

Saturday 5 October , 4:00 pm – 5.00pm

  • Free
  • Panel

If you’ve never wanted to work for someone else, then this is the event for you. This panel discussion is all about starting your own business in the arts. We’ll be joined by editors and the founders of arts organisations to discuss how they got started, the challenges they face and what it’s like to be your own boss.

This event is part of the The Write Business. The Write Business is for creatives who want actionable, tangible steps to turn their art into their professional careers. This program is funded by a grant from FRRR ABC Heywire.

Are you coming?

Our festival is 100% free. It’s always free. But this year, National Young Writers’ Festival is asking for you to register for the festival. Registering for our festival means you can help us maintain and secure our ongoing funding. We rely on funding to provide this opportunity to artists and audiences. We need to understand who exactly we provide this opportunity to.

Can you support NYWF?

During registration, you’ll see an opportunity to buy a NYWF supporter ticket. If you love our festival, we encourage to help support our festival by becoming an NYWF supporter. The “ticket” doesn’t get you into anything extra, it’s a contribution to support the ongoing running costs of our festival: which is 100% free to attend!
