For the past two months I’ve had the pleasure of working with Emma Kerslake of Yolla Consulting delivering mentoring and training to Indigenous small business based on the Gold Coast.
In response to the Barambah <> Cherbourg <> Art <> Craft exhibition, we worked with the the kuril dhagun team at the State Library of Queensland to create a series of three workshops that focused on the development of Indigenous arts and business.
Today I ran a digital marketing for artists workshop with Edgeware Creative Entrepreneurship‘s Cultivate the Arts program. Each of the participants was an emerging, established or aspiring artist and it was interesting to shape my usual marketing and digital media workshop to that specific industry.
For the next nine Friday mornings, I’ll be at Coomera on the Gold Coast as I deliver training to a group of Indigenous business people. Working with Emma Kerslake from Yolla Consulting and Rob Barton from Indigenous Supply Chain Connections, I will be delivering two sessions – Marketing followed by Social Media tips.
Two years ago I took a leap and invested in a Certificate IV in Design at TAFE. It was fantastic. I often felt waaaayyy out of my comfort zone, but I learned so much about Creative Suite. I’ve used that knowledge EVERY day since.
It’s been a week since I’ve returned from Melbourne, and I’m still reeling from all the fantastic content we have been given. I am so grateful to have been accepted into the fourth class of the Murra Indigenous Business Masterclass at the Melbourne Business School of the University of Melbourne.
Okay. So it’s been a huge week. Am feeling more upbeat than I was at the beginning of the week. 🙂
