The Creative Enterprise Programme is a four-day practical workshop that
equips creative entrepreneurs with the tools and knowledge they need to
succeed. Expert facilitators, as well as local market specialists, will
provide face-to-face support to help entrepreneurs explore business
ideas, develop their business proposition, and create a business model
that suits their hopes and motivations.

In June 2019, the British Council in partnership with Nesta (the UK’s innovation Foundation) will deliver the Creative Enterprise Programme again to East Africa.

  • The programme will deliver a four-day workshop in Khartoum, Sudan from 24 – 27 June 2019,
    focusing on the following creative entrepreneur categories – graphic
    designers, visual artists, painters, mural designers, illustrators, fine
    arts and comic artists. 
  • The programme will deliver a four-day workshop in Kampala, Uganda from 05 – 08 August  2019,
    focusing on the following creative entrepreneur categories, performing
    artists, dancers, actors, fashion designers and filmmakers.  

The Creative Enterprise Programme is designed to support entrepreneurs who are already in the process of setting up their own creative enterprise. The workshop content and activities are relevant to people whose businesses are up-and-running and those who are in the very early stages.  

It’s suitable for people just starting out and for people who have
been running a business for a long time, to take a fresh look at their
business using new methods.

We want everyone to take part in our programmes. Wherever possible, we aim to make our programmes and services accessible to all interested applicants. Please let us know if you have any special access needs and we shall do our best to help.
