We love having freelancers along to our TextWorkshop training courses, and offer a special rate of £95 to freelancers and the self-employed.
And if you’re self-employed in the museum and heritage sector, you’re part of a thriving community, according to a survey Rebecca ran in preparation for a session at the Museums Association conference in November. You can read her comment piece on the results in Museums Journal.
The survey results gave a snapshot of a group of professionals pursuing diverse and successful careers outside institutions, from community consultation to strategy development, arts marketing to landscape interpretation, digital project management to curatorship.
Positive attitudes permeated the results and countered many views about the world of freelancing – mainly that the market is flooded with people who would rather work in-house.
Visit Rebecca’s blog to see in-depth results from the survey – and if you’re a freelancer, do think about coming along to a TextWorkshop for some great training from fellow entrepreneurs!
