Curious about working in the arts? The Visual Arts Open Workshop is open to everyone who is keen to find out more about entering the visual arts sector and what it is like to work as a part of it.

The visual arts sector faces a challenge; institutions are slow to respond to much needed change, entry-level positions are highly competitive and career progression is limited. How can the sector create opportunity for those who are committed to working within the arts but whose options are limited? Are traineeships useful and what opportunities and support structures exist for those interested in gaining experience?

This is an opportunity to explore these questions, to gain insight from individuals working in the sector and to engage in meaningful discussion about what it means to work in the arts and how we can make the cultural sector a more inclusive space.

We encourage participants from backgrounds currently under-represented in the arts, particularly those who identify as working class and/or as people of colour. 

This workshop will take place online via Zoom. A link for joining and more instructions will be sent to participants closer to the event.
