Offered by Business Enterprise Centre and the NT Government

Red Hot Arts recommends this as a capacity building opportunity to all arts workers, producers and crew

To the audience it looks like magic, but to you the producer, director, designer it is months of careful planning. No wonder businesses seem like magic to creatives, those crazy desk bound magicians have the same skills but with different names.

Make the show even smoother, make your business seem like magic to others as it rockets forward with bookings and funded ideas. Figure our what your 3rd act will be in 2 years time and make it seem no more than a whim when it appears out of thin air to those around you.

Most importantly, a good plan will let you know when you have gone off script and which way to steer the show back on.

The show must go on, and it is the plan that let’s that happen, not just the players.

This module is aimed at assisting business intenders or those in the early life of a business to:
