FREE TALK on new career paths with Toby Kress
Monday 24th February
Chelsea College of Arts / Room: ALG15A & B, Lower ground floor of A block
Toby Kress discusses the New Career Paths available to you at this FREE talk organised by Made in Arts London & SEE Start-Up.
In the past artists and designers would often get a job to support themselves, pursue residencies and or grant funding and aim to ‘get a gallery’ with the ultimate aspiration of getting a museum show. Now there is more and more entrepreneurial activity: using online platforms to get known, to begin selling work, to find and develop collaborations and to have multiple creative careers.
