Un_Noted Professional Development Workshops
Un_Noted Professional Development Workshops are a series of workshops designed by Occupy Space aiming to provide the practical tools required to work as a professional artist in a competitive art environment.
Serving as a bridge between the culmination of fine art education and the professional art community, as well as being a resource for those further along in their career, the series was launched with a workshop by curator Kate Strain covering topics such as the various formats of an artist C.V. and creating an artist statement. The following workshops then progressed into discussing areas such as web presence, preparing submissions and applying for residencies.
These workshops seek to provide practical information about the opportunities and resources available to artists. They also provide opportunities to interact with a variety of individuals across the art community from established artists, curators and those involved in art education. The workshops offer a platform for discussion of the provision of professional development for artists and the changes that should be made in this respect.
