Professional Development

IDMN runs a range of one-day, cost-effective courses for artists, producers, project managers and those working across the sector.

“To say [IDMN] was no more than a stopping station in the trajectory of my career would be to underestimate the impact it had on me. It allowed me to edit out the unnecessary and to focus on the thoughts and ideas that really mattered as an independent manager. It offered me a voice that could be heard and keen ears that could listen.”
