Tasmanian designers receive competitive edge

01
May '08
Tasmanian designers are invited to attend a one-day workshop this week to improve their entrepreneurial capabilities and develop business-to-business networks.

The Minister for Environment, Parks, Heritage and the Arts, Michelle O'Byrne, said the Entrepreneurship for Tasmanian Designers Workshop was a joint initiative between Arts Tasmania and Economic Development and Tourism and was part of the State Government's Design Island Strategy for assisting designers with business development initiatives.

"The workshop is based on the Springboard Entrepreneurship Workshops, a Federally-funded program, which runs successfully in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane," Ms O'Byrne said.

"The program will enable Tasmanian's most promising furniture, accessories, textiles and home-ware designers to develop their competitive edge.

"The workshop aims to improve Tasmanian designer business skills, export and retail knowledge, online marketing practice, and business planning.

"Participants will improve their business skills and receive practical advice by providing access to experienced national and international mentors.

"The participating Tasmanian designers will further develop their professional career prospects in Australia and international markets.

"The Entrepreneurship for Tasmanian Designers Workshop is an excellent example of skill development that fosters relationships and builds financial, market and business capacity.

"Participants include designers from Design Centre Tasmania, Designed Objects Tasmania, Furniture Design Association, IXL Designs and the Tasmanian School of Art," Ms O'Byrne said.

The workshop is targeted specifically at Tasmanian designers, designer-makers, retailers and exporters of design objects and will be held on Friday (2 May 2008) in Hobart.
