Global round-up: imagine an arts-focused urban village in a major world capital, created from upcycled materials and featuring circus studios, a nightclub, refugee housing and an on-site patisserie? . Introducing #holzmarkt, a newly-opened precinct of riverside Berlin reclaiming the dialogue of creative, inclusive community spaces on an unprecedented scale. . Distressed by the forward march of #gentrification, a collective of passionate individuals proposed an alternative to high-rise commercial construction in the former industrial area. . Through innovative financial backing solutions, a new vision for the area was rolled out – such is the power of an idea and the commitment of a team. . Never underestimate the power of what can be achieved with a brilliant idea – could yours be the next creative #gamechanger? 🌟 . 📸: @krikanika . #thedailyculturepreneur #entrepreneur #culturepreneur #dailytip #biztip #arts #culture #artsprofessional #creative #creativeindustries #galleriesandmuseums #global #inspiration #berlin #community #innovation #aimhigher
I started this account as a way to document professional life in the arts. A sector that (joyfully and frustratingly) does not have a clear career path. This opens up the idea that anything is possible. But there is also huge competition and it is increasingly difficult to be given the chance to prove what you can do. I work REALLY HARD (as does everyone). Sometimes my side projects are complimented as showing my drive and commitment. But often they are questioned as if they will affect my ability to do a job. Whilst I respect the enquiry, it seems difficult to convince people (despite my flawless track record) that I can do both. I am passionate about these projects. I am not just waiting for an opportunity but going out and making it happen myself; gaining skills which I hope will make me more employable. It is then quite demoralising (and confusing) when it seems to be putting me at a disadvantage. I'm sure everyone has experienced something similar. Hope it helps to know that others have too. I love the arts, so no chance of giving up 🎶🎧📷📽🎭🎨 #Theatre #ArtsProfessional #work #creative #performance #motivation #actors #producer #director #writer #artist
When audiences don’t adequately engage with our products and services, there is a tendency to #blame them for it.  The issues, however, are often closer to home. . We need to ask better #questions: who is my target audience, and what do they want and need? How can I offer them the benefit of my skills in a relatable way? What is their honest opinion on what I’m currently offering, and how can I improve on that?  Would these changes require a compromise to the integrity of the product or service? . Remember, there’s nothing to lose from digging a little deeper periodically, but there is much to gain – even if that means making informed decision to continue on without changes 🌟 . #thedailyculturepreneur #entrepreneur #culturepreneur #dailytip #biztip #arts #culture #artsprofessional #creative #creativeindustries #galleriesandmuseums #askbetterquestions #aimhigher
Why don't we ask for #feedback more often? Usually, it’s because are afraid of the response. . Yet you can be certain that if someone is unhappy with us, or with our products or services, everyone probably knows about it but us. . We need to move past our #fear in order to be at our best. If received, it’s always best to respond to any negative feedback with a follow-up question - what would it take to achieve complete satisfaction? . We should never assume that we know what our visitors, customers or clients want from us - because we don't. Ask and improve. Simple as that 🌟 . #thedailyculturepreneur #entrepreneur #culturepreneur #dailytip #biztip #arts #culture #creative #creativeindustries #artsprofessional #galleriesandmuseums #askforfeedback #aimhigher

5 things you should know about exhibition installation in Galleries and Museums: . 1) They take time to plan.  Most likely, years of work. This can include research, sourcing artworks or objects, building exhibition models (scale or digital), trialling lighting designs, clarifying logistics and transport, and creating custom display furniture or tech installations. . 2) It’s physically demanding.  Specialist staff teams need to stand, walk, lift heavy and awkward objects, crawl into small spaces, climb ladders, paint walls, operate scissor-lifts and a variety of power tools.  And sometimes do it over again when it doesn’t look quite right – all to a deadline! . 3) There are no one-size-fits-all approaches.  So every installation is different. . 4) It’s a mixture of fun and stress. Things only seem to come together at the last moment, and there are usually been several panic moments along the way. . 5) It’s an ongoing effort.  Things can change once crowds start moving through, so it’s a daily effort to maintain the space. . But with any luck…the result is seamless and all of the effort is worth it! 🌟 . #thedailyculturepreneur #culturepreneur #entrepreneur #cheatnotes #exhibitioninstallation #artsprofessional #aimhigher #galleriesandmuseums #behindthescenes #arts #culture #artist
Simple ways to conquer the #isolation and #skillshortage often experienced by solo practitioners? . 1) Draw on the experience and advice of those who've managed this path successfully; . 2) Cultivate a #community of individuals in similar situations, allowing you to brainstorm solutions to mutual issues; . 3) Upskilling to fill knowledge gaps; . 4) Delegating or skill swapping with those who can offer what we need. . A big part of #success is honesty in assessing our own strengths and weaknesses. Where are the gaps in your creative professional practice? 🌟 . 📸: #repost via @violettinder . #thedailyculturepreneur #culturepreneur #entrepreneur #howto #solopractitioner #creativeindustries #artsprofessional #aimhigher #shareskills #art #arts #culture #artist

Unhappy with your current job? Keen to transition your career (even into a different industry?) If so, you aren’t the only one out there! Here are a few tips to get you started (courtesy of @celesteheadlee via @seancroxton): . 1) Don’t quit your day job…yet.  Experiment within the safety net of your current income – take a new part-time job, freelance, volunteer, or request work experience in a different department. . 2) Be open to opportunity (and be openminded) – it’s surprising what comes your way when you are willing. . 3) Ask yourself honestly: What do I do well? What do others say I do well?  What do I most like doing?  Ensure that any new career path will incorporate these responses. . Like many important decisions in life, we cannot know until we try.  What are you waiting for? 🌟 . #thedailyculturepreneur #entrepreneur #culturepreneur #howto #careerchange #justdoit #artsprofessional #aimhigher #lifesshort #dailytip #art #arts #culture #artist
What is holding back your creative vision?  Often what terrifies us is what we most need to conquer in order to move to the next level.  Moving outside of our comfort zones is, by definition, going to be uncomfortable! . This might mean being bold enough ask for feedback about your work performance from managers or customers, pursuing smarter money management skills, or taking more creative risks. . Choosing to work through these fears can bring new skills, confidence and opportunities.  Learn to challenge yourself on a daily basis in small yet significant ways, with the expectation that you will increase your resilience to change and be quicker on your feet in this ever-changing industry. . Change is, after all, the only constant! 🌟 . #thedailyculturepreneur #artsprofessional #dailytip #biztip #bebold #kickassskills #startanewconversation #timeforchange #culturepreneur #entrepreneur #museumsandgalleries #arts #artist #culture #creative
What would most help you deliver tasks to a higher standard? It's worth reflecting periodically. . Answers may include: more time for project research, upskilling in certain areas, and flexibility with creative experimentation. . Perhaps the answer is even simpler - better stationery, improved filing systems or daily scheduling adjustments. . Find a way to prioritize what you need, selling the benefits to your management where necessary. It is not selfish to be realistic about your pursuit of excellence, which ensures your skill set and output remain relevant and effective in this constantly changing industry 🌟 . 📸: @teken_ing #thedailyculturepreneur #smallsteps #aimhigh #art #arts #culture #artsprofessional #culturepreneur #entrepreneur #dailytip #biztip

#RsbExpressions Good Rising. Having a clear idea of who you are and what you do is very important esp. as a business. Know the platforms on which you choose to execute your purpose. Grabbing your ideas from the ether and manifesting them on the physical plane is not just as simple as "making it happen". Thats cool for the beginning stages of discovery. For the elevation to the next level, it requires #ConsciousDecision and #DecisiveAction.... There's a difference between #Spirit being a guide, and spirit doing the work for you. (Hence the #AfrikanProverb " Pray to god to save you, but row to the shore".) With that said I ask you, .....HAVE YOU PICKED THE ORE TO ROW TOWARDS YOUR #ABUNDANCE? #SundaySermon . . .
