Introducing Greenlit U
For the past two years, the team at Greenlit has worked with hundreds of creatives to find their audience and secure funding for their projects. We’ve had the privilege to work with creatives of every genre and form, from first-time filmmakers to established musicians and award-winning playwrights. Since Greenlit’s founding in 2019, our mission remains unchanged: we want to help creatives fund their passion and build sustainable careers.
This year, we’re expanding that vision by launching a new training programme that we’re calling Greenlit U. Greenlit U will bring in professionals from across the industry to speak with creatives and give them the tools and skills they need to succeed as creative entrepreneurs in today’s fast-changing arts landscape.
Over the next several months, participants will learn how to effectively claim tax credits, successfully navigate festival submissions, better brand themselves and their projects, and much, much more.
Most importantly, we want to hear from you. What challenges are you facing? What is the obstacle holding you back from making your next project? We want to help, and Greenlit U will continue to evolve to meet the ongoing needs of our creatives.
Are you interested? We hope so. Register your interest today for the first session of Greenlit U at grn.lt/glu.
