Leaving Education is Scary 3 : Treating Your Own Work Professionally
Date: Friday 2 Aug 2013
Location: The Stanley & Audrey Burton Gallery
Time: 13:30 - 15:30
Public seminar series by and for Fine Art students and early career artists
This summer, Fine Art students are organising a series of workshops aimed at other budding artists wanting to develop their knowledge of professional practice. While there are no formulas for being a 'professional artist', these workshops have been designed so that we can learn the essentials from invited speakers already working professionally in the arts outside of University.
Session 3: TREATING YOUR OWN WORK PROFESSIONALLY
Getting down to the nitty-gritty, the last in this series of workshops will look at some of the practical issues regarding your own work. Expect top tips on: documentation; archiving material; packing, storage and shipping; legal issues and advice on being self-employed. (Speakers tbc)
