Communicating Your Practice
Conall Cary will work with artists for a full-day workshop on Communicating Your Practice on Saturday 5 October. This is part of our professional development programme in partnership with Visual Artists Ireland, Clare Arts Office, Limerick Arts and Culture Department, and Tipperary Arts Office at Ormston House.
Topics covered include: 1) building partnerships to help bridge gaps in skill-sets and experience; 2) communicating your work to the arts community vs. to a non-arts community; 3) examples of past applications and proposals; 4) proposals such as Public Art Commissions; 5) physical presentation of practice (design); and 6) analysis of participants’ work, social media, websites. Participants can bring along a copy of their artist statement and examples of previous work or submissions. There will also be a Q&A session towards the end of the day.
Registration is now open.
