Join us at Colonnade House – Creative Hub for an evening about marketing for artists, makers, small publishers and creatives in general. Marketing tools are available to all of us but the best way to navigate them, how much time we should invest in marketing and what type of marketing approach will be most effective can be very confusing. That is why we have invited three fantastic creatives to speak from very different angles on how they market their business and what they have discovered so far.
