Are you an early- or mid-career artist who needs new skills to launch your work out into the world? With a focus on professionalism and confidence-building, this workshop offers key information and practical strategies for visual artists seeking opportunities for their work. Separated into four modules with each session led by an experienced artist or administrator from the arts sector. The facilitators are Jess Cook (107 Projects), Kelly Doley (Barbara Cleveland), Sebastian Goldspink (NAS and Alaska Projects) and Joan Cameron-Smith (NAS), who also facilitates the whole workshop. They will teach you how to gain exposure, improve your communication skills, and the importance of networking to build relationships in a community that will support you and your practice. Be introduced to the breadth, depth and diversity of platforms and avenues visual artists can use to support their practice. You will have the opportunity to pitch your ideas in an activity-driven session designed to equip you with tips on public speaking, body language and delivering an artistic concept with confidence and clarity. The workshop also looks at key concerns of any artist – raising money, grant writing, administrative and business processes, with an emphasis on research, preparation and presents real case studies. You will come away with practical strategies to develop new approaches to your professional practice as a successful artist in a challenging marketplace, to successfully negotiate on projects and work collaboratively across sectors.
