about freelance Thursdays
We know how tough it can be being a freelancer or small business owner. Our Freelance Thursdays aren’t only to meet other people in the area who work alone but to learn the essentials: how to do your tax return and register as self-employed, how to build your personal brand and how to master the basics of social media. We can promise you a break away from your shared office, back room or studio with the chance to meet other artists, freelancers, digital start-ups and community organisers in the area – we’ll put the kettle on and get the biscuits out.
Brigantia is not currently wheelchair accessible after 5pm. There is an accessible toilet and on-street parking outside the building. If you’d like to know anything further about accessibility contact us on 01924 437 966.
Brigantia is located on the 5th floor of Empire House on Wakefield Old Road in Dewsbury Town Centre. Empire House is the building above the Post Office, just next to the town hall. Someone will be located at the entrance of the building to send you in the right direction on the day.
