HIPI Hang Out Forum

The HIPI team are hosting forums for artists and producers working in performing arts. The groups will discuss their work with each other and invited guests, developing their knowledge and getting support with taking the next step to produce their project. People are invited to join the conversation in an open and supportive environment with leading arts managers and producers from Hull and the region.

Here are our next sessions:

Confused by cash flow? Puzzled by procurement? Managing your project or company finances can be a daunting task.

Setting up a Company
Thursday 2 April 2020
6-8pm, Humber Street Gallery, Free

Setting up your own company is an exciting and rewarding experience, but with so many approaches to consider it can be confusing too. When is the right time to make it official? Should you become a Limited Company, a Community Interest Group or even think about gaining charitable status? We will look at the advantages of different routes, discuss the nitty gritty of legal responsibilities and introduce you to experts who can help.
