A series of two workshops with artist, trader and feral economist Kate Rich. In these sessions we will reclaim the art of business advice as a grassroots community resource. This may involve abandoning some burnt-out assumptions of what business success would look like such as competitiveness, busyness and growth. Instead we will take up experimental skills and vital camaraderie to consider and produce alternatives.

Expect to dive straight in to practising how we might advise ourselves. In the first session we will engage in a business listening do-si-do, with Zoom as our dance floor.

In the second, we will use our breadth of knowledge from life to start practising business advice with each other for real. There may also be a
short homework exercise between the two workshops (one hour maximum).

This is training so you will need to commit to both sessions. BYO quandaries of business and livelihood to share with others. These workshops are of relevance to the self-employed individual, the arts collective and the small business endeavour, established or prospective.

This workshop will take place on Zoom, using video & audio, and the workshop leader will ask you to participate throughout (either by voice or text chat). You are very welcome to bring a support worker with you to the session (just let us know by email after you book so we can share the Zoom link with them too). There is live-captioning (words pop up as they are spoken).

Please let us know if you have any access needs by 21 May 2021, via, so we can make arrangements
