Artists looking to develop their careers have an upcoming opportunity to gain some fresh insight and learn a few new business skills.
Flying Arts Alliance, the state’s champion for the development of professional visual arts practice, is offering two professional development opportunities to assist artists to develop a sustainable practice.
An interactive forum on the topic of “How to Set up and Run an Artist Run Initiative” will feature speakers and case studies from three of Brisbane’s top ARIs including Addition Gallery, Inhouse ARI, The Wandering Room.
The forum will take place on Thursday 23 August 2012 at the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts, from 1 pm – 4 pm with a cost of $15 for members and $20.
A professional development workshop on “How to Plan and Facilitate an Arts Workshop” will provide skills and insight for artists wishing to pass on skills or augment their income by planning and running an arts workshop.
The workshop will take place on Sunday 16 September 2012 at Art Shed Brisbane in West End for a full day from 10am to 4pm with a cost of $45 for members and $55 for non members.
