“Joining the N17 Creative Callings program has meant I have a mentor that understands and wants the very best for me. I have had so much help with legal matters, I am on a free course for pattern cutting and I have help whenever I need it to make sure my J'Adore Hardcore range is perfect in all respects. I did not expect this program to be this good - the people here are amazing.” - Chema Diaz
Lola, is a choreographer and dance teacher based in Tottenham. She has been dancing professionally for 15 years . When she signed up to N17 Creative Callings , her business had been severely impaired by the pandemic , as she had been delivering dance workshops in primary schools, which encapsulated teaching times tables with dance routines.
Lola signed up to the video editing course during the last lockdown in winter 2020-2021. She signed up to develop her digital skills and create a promotional video.Lola admitted that she wasn't hugely confident with her digital skills but through weekly coaching, sharing her work in progress, with her peers, receiving feedback and practice she created a vibrant promotional video using footage she shot at home and prior to the pandemic to showcase the service she offers.Since the course she has shared the video with many prospective clients and has connected with local community group and has delivered her first outdoor timetable dance workshop since the first workshop .
She´s looking to continue build her client base and expanding her team of choreographers to deliver workshops in schools, libraries and community groups across north London
Lola says the course helped her by " Enabling me to focus on a new edit or skill and was great for me , especially during a lockdown. Going from a-z was a good experience for me, to greater understand the process behind creating a promo film . It showed me what I'm able to achieve with focus, support and confidence which was a great advert showcasing my new programme"

Here’s what she had to say about N17CC and the free support and business advice she has received:“I think it’s amazing that Haringey offers this N17 Creative Callings service to support creatives like me. I have had my first meeting with Fashion-Enter and we already have a plan of action on the direction of business. This is a free service for local residents and after Covid it’s just what businesses need. My sales have already gone up in just a week and I am really impressed with how professional, helpful and friendly Fashion-Enter have been. And I think it’s incredible that this level of tailored support is free to local creatives. Thank-you to all concerned.”
