Event description

Description

Making art is one thing, but getting it seen is quite another.

Friendly Savage and La Trobe Art Institute have come together to guide participants through the somewhat mysterious process of developing a profile, writing perfect pitches and creating opportunities to exhibit.

This full-day professional development program is suited to artists who are just starting out, as well as those who wish to take their creative careers to the next level.

Full day tickets include morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea.
Individual sessions (morning or afternoon) do not include lunch, unfortunately.




MORNING SESSION 9AM - 12:30PM

Facilitated by Bryley Savage, Creative Director at Friendly Savage

Session 1: Building your profile
Do artists need a brand?
Why brand values are important for artists to build an audience to reach their artistic goals.
Workshop and discussion.

Session 2: Engaging with social media as an artist
Why you need to get on the social media bandwagon, and how?
In this workshop, we will discuss authentic ways for you to engage with your audience using social media, with practical examples. Bring along your device or laptop to this session.




LUNCH 12:30PM - 1:25PM




AFTERNOON SESSION 1:30PM - 5:00PM

Session 3: What Galleries Want | CVs pitches and proposals
Facilitated by Dr Kent Wilson & Dr Karen Annett-Thomas
Writing exhibition proposals can be tricky and it is often difficult to find out exactly what galleries want. In this session, participants will hear directly from industry professionals about the do’s and don’ts of writing Artist CVs, project pitches and exhibition proposals.

Session 4: Emerging Curator’s Program with Brigid Hanson
Every two years one exhibition slot at LAI is left ajar for a new voice.
LAI’s OPEN CALL: Emerging Curators Program is open to curators in the early stages of their career. Join 2018 emerging curator, Brigid Hanson as she chats about her exhibition Artivisms Now and reveals her experience of collaborating with LAI.

Session 5: Creating Space
Panel Discussion: Panelists to be confirmed.
Sometimes you’ve just got to carve out your own space. In this session LAI brings together a panel of arts professionals who have created their own opportunities to share their practice with the world.





This Event is supported by the Regional Centre for Culture Program, a Victorian Government initiative in partnership with the Dja Dja Wurrung Clans Aboriginal Corporation and City of Greater Bendigo.
