A panel of established figures from the commercial sectors will present their experience of how artists develop their careers. Nathaniel Pitt (Division of Labour), Henry Little (Breese Little), and Cara Lockley (Hand Hand in Glove), will present a series of case studies on how they have supported artists in establishing themselves. bit.ly/1fIKftA
This will be followed by an extensive Q&A with the audience, about ways in which visual artists can support themselves and gain recognition. Places at the panel discussion are free, but should be booked by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Before hosting the panel discussion Spacex is inviting artists to come along for breakfast between 9 -10.30am to share ideas. We are seeking proposals from Exeter-based artists that will contribute to a season of events designed to question, propose and test new models for a future visual arts institution. These events could include ideas for workshops, talks, cafes, performances etc and will take place between August and October.
Unfortunately I can't be there but I am interested in social media and how this works as promotion. One issue is how much content is available free or open. How is it a version of the original or something that gets income? The web started as free but the ads are very annoying. Could be time for subscriptions. Not sure if this is off topic already.
Cafes through October...on a couple of Phonic FM shows we are trying out mobile devices to move the studio closer to coffee. Any links or ideas welcome. The unexpected in Exeter is now officially unexpected. So this opens a lot of scope.
