Creative Industry

The Town of Erin is excited to be collaborating with WorkInCulture (WIC) to present a FREE professional
development intensive for artists and arts workers in the Erin area to help you grow your creative careers!

Artists at any stage of their career are welcome.

Growing Creative Careers in Erin (GCCE) is an intensive 4 session program that will include discussions,
hands on learning, reflective work, tools and tips, and access to experts. Participants who complete the
program will come away with an understanding of how to move their creative careers and businesses
forward. Though it is recommended that participants attend all sessions to get a well rounded
understanding of the topics/skills that are essential to growing a creative career, it is not mandatory to
attend each session.
