The 1:1 advice

Following the Symposium in November and the Workshops in December, we are now welcoming applications for the free 1:1 advice.

We can provide five individuals or businesses with 4 hours of expert business advice from a sector specialist. This is an opportunity for you to work in depth on your business plan, cashflow forecasts, finance options or long-term strategy which will set you up to progress towards getting the keys to your own venue. 

As places are limited, they'll be decided indication of business support need and potential impact to your business from support - e.g. will 1:1 support enable significant progress towards your leasing or purchasing a cultural venue?

Who will benefit from the advice?

  • You’re planning to operate a public-facing cultural venue such as a music venue, theatre, comedy club or other forms of performance and art presentation
  • You may already have a building in mind, or know where you want to be based
  • You haven’t leased or bought a venue before

Who can’t be supported?

  • People who are looking to open a creative workspace, restaurant or rehearsal studio - i.e. a building that won’t offer public-facing cultural performances

Who will be providing the 1:1 advice?
Creative United will match you with one of our team of industry specialists based on your needs and ambitions:
