Creative Enterprise Week: Beyond collaboration

Creative Enterprise Week: Beyond collaboration
September 17, 2014 Calverts_123

Creative co-operation will be the subject of a Calverts talk for this year’s UAL Creative Enterprise Week, at Central Saint Martins Granary Building, in King’s Cross on 21 November.

 

Collaborative practice is taught in design and art schools, yet competition and the cult of the creative individual reassert themselves strongly in the world of work. How can groups of creative workers make use of the co-operative model in their own practice, to meet their needs and desires? How does it differ from conventional business? What are the advantages of co-operatives over hierarchical and private enterprises? What’s the difference between a collective and a co-operative?

 

Sion Whellens will reflect on Calverts experience of 37 years co-op working to offer answers to these questions. The talk will also signpost practical considerations and resources for anyone interested in moving beyond ‘business as usual’.

 

We’re also sponsoring a prize in the Ethical and Social Business category for the 2014 Creative Enterprise Awards.

 

Creative Enterprise Week is a packed 5 days for creative start-ups, freelancers, entrepreneurs and people with ideas. It’s designed to give you practical skills, insider tips and the inspiration to get your idea off the ground.
