WorkInCulture's Growing Creative Careers: Windsor & Region, developed and delivered in partnership with WindsorEssex Small Business Centre and Arts Council Windsor & Region, offers professional development training that will benefit the businesses and careers of artists, creatives, and cultural workers living in the Windsor-Essex area. The program will be delivered 4 times to four different cohorts over the course of 2021 - 2023.

Each cohort will have a slightly different focus on programming and activities. Cohort 1 will focus on emerging and early-career artists, creatives, and cultural workers.

Early career and emerging artists and creatives will create a personal toolkit to prepare them for identifying and pursuing opportunities in their field. Through workshops, co-working sessions, peer- centered sharing, presentations and activities, participants will gain competency and confidence in establishing themselves in the creative community. These activities will focus participants on articulating their practices, curating and preparing professional CVs, presenting themselves and their work, cultivating an online presence, and introducing production and distribution structures and marketing basics.

Participants will connect with community leaders and learn about resources available to support their goals. Emphasis in this program is on supporting creatives in the development of personalized resources that can be used for applications, planning, and project development in a collaborative community environment. Participants are encouraged to connect with and learn from each other’s experiences as they navigate the early stages of professional development.

This intensive program requires participants to work outside of meeting times in order to prepare materials. For Cohort 1, training delivery with be offered virtually.
