Side Hustling for Creatives

Side Hustling for Creatives is a live, 6-week online course that will provide you with a roadmap and the support you need to succeed on your journey as a creative entrepreneur. In addition to the weekly course, there will be weekly office hour sessions where you can ask focussed questions about your business ideas.

Led by experienced creative entrepreneurs, you will learn how to identify your ideal target customer, how to position and price your offer, and how to plan a successful launch. You’ll also learn new systems to manage your time and energy so you can follow through on growing your side hustle without falling into the burnout trap.

  3. Practical Business Skills: Acquire the necessary skills to build a thriving creative business. We will delve into identifying your ideal target customer, pricing your offers strategically, and planning a successful launch to maximize your impact and income.

Art Factory Programs

The goal of the Art Factory program is to enhance art education to at-risk, marginalized, and under-represented populations, while providing valuable, cultural-sector employment, training, and community engagement opportunities to NSCAD Students. The NSCAD Art Factory makes art accessible to all. The Art factory brings the community into NSCAD, and extends NSCAD into the greater community through outreach and innovation.

Our programs provide senior students (3rd-4th year with with a strong understanding of their medium and its processes) paid training, support and mentorship in workshop development and delivery.
