WORKSHOP | Professional Development for Arts Workers

Flying Arts has a long history of providing arts workshops to the regions and Harbinger’s John Armstrong has been engaged to deliver a weekend of professional development to the arts workers of the Fraser Coast. John will draw on his vast experience as an artist, educator, mentor and consultant to work in Hervey Bay with a small group to explore the ways that a resume can be structured for maximum impact and will facilitate an interactive session on writing and talking about the creative process. Through a peer to peer learning circle participants will develop their own resources as the next step in their careers.

John’s recent work has been particularly focused on peer-to-peer learning and engagement to encourage reflection. He draws on a range of models including coaching clinics and learning circles to create space for discussion, feedback and learning.

Making art is the start of the artist’s journey into successful business and creative enterprise. Knowing how to write about, document and present artwork is the next important step in getting ready to go to market. The visual arts is an extremely competitive world and taking care about how the work is presented can be as important as the work itself when it comes to getting noticed. This workshop introduces participants to the skills and techniques to develop a professional portfolio designed to impress. It discusses a range of practical tips and tools for writing about and documenting work and outlines the process of presenting a portfolio with confidence.
