- Find out more about the programme and whether it could be for you and your enterprise in the future
- See an exclusive visual arts commission which will be started and completed live during the launch – watch the artist at work!
About THE “P” WORD
THE “P” WORD is a brand-new, nine-month leadership development programme for diverse artists and entrepreneurs. Co-designed with its participants, THE “P” WORD is being led by PUNCH and the CENTRE FOR RESEARCH IN ETHNIC MINORITY ENTREPRENEURSHIP – “CREME”– at ASTON UNIVERSITY BUSINESS SCHOOL.
As COVID-19 continues to impact the creative industries, innovative models of business support are needed now more than ever, especially to tackle the structural inequalities that continue to hold back the potential of black artists and new-entrepreneurs. THE “P” WORD is designed to identify “roadblocks” holding back the productivity of creative businesses and will address them through bespoke training and intensive mentoring.
