27 April – 29 June (10 weeks)
Tuesdays, 3:30 – 5 pm
The goal of the workshops is to equip artists to engage confidently and professionally with their communities. They will support connections between practitioners, and provide a supportive space to present studio work and gain feedback on their practice, the workshops conclude with a group exhibition.
Ideally participants are engaged in making and are able to develop a body of work to exhibit. Places are limited to a maximum of six participants.
The workshop content is tailored to the needs of the participants, broadly, we will cover; maintaining a creative practice, research and context of making, and critical discussion with our fellow creatives. We will also cover grants and funding for arts projects, the business side of creative practice. Participants will be engaged in making work, preparation and planning for an exhibition, installation, sponsorship, documentation, contracts and statement writing.
These workshops have been enabled thanks to generous support from Creative Communities Arts Grants and Creative Northland’s NCFF scheme.
If you are interested in attending please contact Angela Rowe on her email address below. Numbers are limited so please get in touch quick.
