Sustainable Creative Careers: Getting Your Career Started

Have you recently finished art school or decided you would like to turn your art hobby into a career? Do contracts, tax, gallery hire and commission agreements leave you confused? 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!)

The art world can be a confusing and difficult space to navigate, especially when keeping pace with changing trends, expectations and technology. The ANU School of Art & Design brings together artists and arts workers to help answer questions and give you some ideas about what skills are needed to gain a place in the contemporary art world.

These events are suitable for recent graduates, emerging artists, mid-career artists and for anyone looking to re-boot their career!
