The goal of this workshop hosted by Glogauair and Anita Kroo is to assist artists in obtaining and developing their skills for the multifaceted professional art world. Writing artist statements, constructing artist talks and presentations, assembling digital portfolios, and writing grant applications are all some of the challenging career tasks artists encounter on a regular basis as working professionals.
This workshop provides artist useful guidelines and mentoring through a weekly session of group discussions, interactions and critique, in order to tackle these practical concerns. Throughout the meetings artists will have the opportunity to rehearse their oral presentation skills, develop their writing, and research themes of their work through a contemporary art context.
