The Artist's Journey. Which way is it now?

Being an artist can take you to places you never thought were possible, but the paths are unclear and the maps complicated. Come on a trip that treads the routes that artists take, goes back to places we have all been before, and shares the picnics along the way to help us plan the next excursions.

This conference forms part of Making Ways, delivered through a partnership with Sheffield Hallam University and Yorkshire and Humber Visual Arts Network (YVAN) with additional support from Bloc Projects and Yorkshire Artspace.

Navigating the Art World Seminar with Doug Fishbone

Saturday and Sunday, October 24-25, 2015
Hackney, London


Special Guest Speaker: Sam Chatterton Dickson, Director of Sales, Lisson Gallery

This two-day seminar offers an overview of issues in professional practice and development for visual artists. It is particularly aimed to advise artists and students making the transition from BA or MA courses to the "real" world of professional practicing artists.

A unique feature of the seminar is that each participant will have a one-on-one hour-long private tutorial in which they can focus on issues and questions particular to their situation. It also provides students with a detailed course manual which is a useful long-term reference.

The first session is an all-day lecture/discussion from 10.00 - 18.00, which will cover the following:

- Managing Materials ie CV / Portfolio

- Marketing and Self-Promotion

- Networking and Press

- Dealing with galleries

- Looking for work / Interning

- Useful resources

- Creative approaches to funding projects

- How to conduct a successful research campaign - using the Internet as a strategic tool

We are fortunate to have a special session with guest speaker Sam Chatterton Dickson, who is the director of Sales at Lisson Gallery, one of the world's leading contemporary art galleries, who will be taking about working with galleries.

The second day is devoted to individual tutorials.

Students will have a private hour-long coaching session/tutorial to discuss whatever issues they would like.
