Promoting, financing, publishing, and selling your work without losing your passion for creating it.

Being an artist today is very demanding and requires multiple skills and strategies in order to be successful, which I define as being able to make a living from your creativity.

I will take you through different strategies which I believe can help participants in their artistic careers, including: networking, promotion, participation in portfolio reviews, self-publishing, crowdfunding, grants, competitions, selling fine art prints and collaborating with institutions, galleries, and artist collectives. We will discuss our experiences in both a local and international context, utilizing the group’s potential for sharing and inspiring each other.
