Tomorrow I will be doing a workshop/lecture on creating an online identity in the Belltable ad part of the Un_Noted series of professional practice workshops. When I saw the event on Facebook I thought it was a fantastic idea to give this series, as it was an area that terrified me when I finished college. There was a real lack of information about what to do when you got out into the real world. Un_NOTED.
My workshop starts at 1pm, and if you are interested in going please contact Orlaith Treacy for booking info, it's only €5 to attend! I will be talking about the importance of Blogging, Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest, for the first half. Then people can have a Q&A where they can pick my brain for technical info.
Here is the press release:
Occupy Space presents:
UN_NOTED, PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOPS FOR ARTISTS.
Un_Noted Professional Development Workshops are a series of workshops 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, we will begin 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 will then progress 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 will 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 will be a platform for discussion of the provision of professional development for artists and the changes that should be made in this respect.
The workshops will commence on the 4th of October from 1pm until 2:30pm each Thursday in the Belltable Arts Centre running for eight weeks with a break of one week after the first four, recommencing on the 8th of November in Ormston House. Entry fee is €5 per workshop, €15 for 4 workshops, concessional rate €3.50 per workshop, €12 for 4 workshops when student card is produced.
Please email email@example.com to book a place as numbers are limited.
