Who it's for

This course is part of a Creative Skillset funded initiative for freelancers who are interested in working in television. Click here for further details. The course provides practical skills to know how and when to find, refine, pitch or ditch ideas. The “Creative Pop Ups” are designed for teams or individuals working on ambitious creative projects that are bringing freelancers together.

Brief Description
The “Creative Pop Ups” offer ways to develop ideas and projects in order to give them the best chance of actually happening in an increasingly competitive marketplace. Based on original content developed by the BBC’s Creative Leadership Programme the material brings together creative tools and techniques with insights into leadership skills. This is not a pitching opportunity but a chance to work on ideas, projects or proposals and get them ‘pitch ready’. The "Creative Pop Ups" are designed to support the ideas of a new, diverse UK talent base which will go on to be the next generation of technology and format developers, writers, artists and producers. A large proportion of the BBC has benefited from the programme yet many within the indie and freelance community have been unable to attend due to cost. We are delivering nine one-day "Creative Pop Ups" for production companies, individuals and organisations working in the fields of art, theatre, technology and media across the UK. Each "Creative Pop Up" will take 10-15 people at a time though creative tools, techniques to inspire and motivate teams and ways to influence others that your ideas are the best! We anticipate high demand for places on this course. Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis subject to meeting the course pre-requisites.

Outline
The “Creative Pop Ups” provide both the tools to generate new ideas and an understanding of how to ensure the very best ideas get to market, through maximising creative leadership, harnessing the creative styles of teams and setting the right environment for creativity and innovation to flourish. The morning session gets under the bonnet of creativity, unleashing tried and tested techniques to allow creatives to play with new ideas and concepts. The afternoon will work on the outcomes from the morning and offer delegates ways to develop the focus of their ideas in combination with new creative leadership skills to influence, persuade and inspire others.

Aims
The "Creative Pop-ups" are designed to share the original material developed at the BBC within the wider creative community. The project supports and develops a new and diverse network of emerging talent in the UK and provides the opportunity for delegates to make new connections.
