Event description

Description

Are you an arts and humanities PhD researcher at a Scottish HEI?

Do you have a creative idea and want to know how to present confidently?

Want to know more about financial support for new ventures?

A Creative Enlightenment is for you …

This training programme is for doctoral researchers in the arts and humanities from across Scotland who are thinking about how they can apply their skills and experience beyond the PhD.

This one day event will incorporate a morning of inspiring talks and discussion, followed by an afternoon workshop in pitching and presentation skills that will give you the confidence to pitch your idea to potential funders and investors. The programme is designed for arts and humanities researchers, aiming to strike a balance between focusing on your own professional development and bigger picture issues affecting creative and social enterprises.

Lunch will be provided and travel expenses from your home HEI will be reimbursed.
