Artists and Writers Unite! How to break into the world of art writing
This 1-day symposium will explore the mysterious and sometimes difficult to access world of art writing, and uncover ways that artists and writers can join up to enrich their respective practices.
Presenters include Lara Eggleton, freelance writer and Managing Editor at Corridor8, Sara Jaspan, freelance writer and Exhibitions Editor at Creative Tourist, Gabrielle de la Puente from The White Pube and Elaine Speight from In Certain Places.
Each will share valuable insights and reflect on their experiences as creative thinkers, writers and editors. The event will also address how digital platforms are key to opening up critical debate and extending artists’ exposure.
There will be ample time for questions and discussion throughout the day, as well as opportunities to meet and chat with other creative professionals.
Free to attend but booking is essential as places are limited.
Lunch and refreshments provided (v/vg/gf options available).
