A series of events about making and maintaining opportunities in the visual arts. Led by tutor Alastair Gordon, the programme aims to help artists establish a long-term, sustainable and rigorous art practice.

Through a series of lectures and workshops, artists will discuss practical strategies for surviving as an artist and how to thrive beyond art school.

Subjects will include how to grow in confidence in approaching galleries, building your support network, making the most of social media, developing your online presence, knowing your rights within art law, applying for open call exhibitions and residencies, managing resources of time and money, writing an artist statement and building your CV. There will be opportunity to receive critical feedback on your work through group crits and to discover how to situate your practice in the wider context of the contemporary art world.

A selection of visiting artists and guest speakers will also be invited to lead individual sessions on a termly basis*.

£20 per session
