Poster for Incubate

CRIPtic Arts is delighted to announce the Incubate programme for deaf & disabled-led arts organisations.

Incubate is a peer-support programme facilitated by Jamie Hale, with four places for people building deaf and disabled-led arts organisations in the UK, and is funded by Arts Council England.

What is Incubate?

Incubate is based on the learning of CRIPtic Arts over the last two years. It will work with four people building arts organisations – from registering as a Community Interest Company, registering your trademarks, and finance, to branding, telling your story, and building your deaf & disabled-led arts organisation.

The planned sessions are:

  1. Introductions: who are we, what do we want, where are we going
  2. Registering a business, organisational structures (e.g. CIC, charity, limited company), and how to get started
  3. Accessing support – access workers, Access to Work, and other options
  4. Finance, funding and budgeting as an organisation
  5. Branding and online presence – making your mark
  6. Half-way check-up – how are we doing, and where are we going?
  7. Building professional relationships and establishing boundaries
  8. Rates and negotiation – paying yourself fairly
  9. Tools, apps and tech – what’s out there to make life easier
  10. Time management – balancing competing responsibilities
  11. Developing and running workshops and training
  12. Sharing resources and planning the future

What next?

We can’t wait to tell you about the four fabulous organisations we’re working with…
