Boot Camp6 July 2012 Artery
The initiative provided intensive, three-month business coaching for emerging independent producers who were matched with highly regarded Australian producers.
The Boot Campers included:
Dave Sleswick from Mother Board Production matched with Marguerite Pepper.
Hear Kristal, Kath, Dave and Sam speak about their Boot Camp experience:
Over the three months the emerging producers learnt how to manage work/life balance, define their business structures and create strategic plans for the future. They also attended the Australian Performing Arts Market (APAM) in Adelaide to network with industry peers and learn the art of selling.
The Boot Campers received recognition from the sector and have all seen flow on affects through their association with the initiative. The coaching gave the emerging producers the boost and confidence to continue juggling the precarious nature of independent producing.
The coaches were thrilled that Boot Camp acknowledged independent producing as an important part of the arts sector and developed the next generation of Australian producers.
