While we have a preferred field of work, most freelances quickly realise that there are unavoidable downtimes where the work we want to do is thin on the ground.

This is why it’s useful and sometimes crucial to be able to transfer our skills (and perhaps gain news ones) to create other areas of work that are satisfying and lucrative and may allow us to support our core career in the long term.

By the end of this workshop, you should be able to:

  • Recognise the benefits of diversifying your career
  • Start to assess and identify your previously unrecognised, ignored or under-valued saleable skills
  • Understand how to start putting your portfolio career together
  • Explore ways of marketing your portfolio career
  • Have a better idea of how to manage your portfolio career.

Who should attend

Freelances working in the creative industries who wish to find new ways of using and updating their skills to create more work opportunities.


No formal qualifications are needed to attend this workshop.
