Getting Your Career Started | Sustainable Creative Careers

Getting your Career Started

Is art your thing?

Have you recently finished art school or decided you’d like to pursue a career in visual arts? Have you been working as an artist but don’t quite know how to access the best resources to help you understand contracts and tax, gallery hire & commission?

Getting your Career Started provides an overview of the range of skills necessary to be a practicing artist.

This session is suitable for anyone who doesn’t quite understand the complexities of how to get your career started (or how to sustain it once you’ve made a start!)
