Management Workshop

The Seed Fund

The Management Workshop is a one-stop shop open to Australian emerging managers, including self-managed artists, for practical strategies to manage artists in the establishment phase of their career. In a creative industry where there is no set path, we believe the most effective way to learn is by sharing knowledge and seeking out those who have gone before. Providing access to an unrivaled list of industry experts from managers to publishers, lawyers, publicists, promoters and media representatives, the Management Workshop provides an opportunity for managers to come face to face with leaders in their field.

Applications will be accepted from managers, including self-managed artists. The Seed will provide and arrange transport, accommodation and meals for all successful applicants. Should you be successful all you need to do is get yourself to your closest major airport. Read more
