Professional Practice in the Visual Arts seminar

I attended this Professional Practice seminar when it was presented at VANSA in Cape Town a couple of years ago and I highly recommend it for any artist committed to their art career as main income or focus. I found it very valuable!

Entitled “Show me the Money” this seminar focuses on critical financial aspects of the Visual Art Sector.

Art Source South Africa and Lizamore & Associates are hosting a seminar on Professional Practice and the Business of Arts, for artists looking to effectively navigate their professional careers. Those who have attended past seminars will benefit from this new content, as well as those artists who are looking to understand how the financial side of a professional art career works.

While talent, dedication, technical expertise and hard work are necessary to create an artwork; information, a clear plan and an understanding of the business of art develops a career! This is what this seminar programme offers.Building on eight years of presenting to artists, gallerists, lecturers and other visual arts professionals, the seminar series has been a popular event on the arts calendar and was nominated for a 2014 Business and Arts Awards. These seminars are focused on key aspects of financial sustainability, career development, business strategy and industry knowledge that are necessary to navigate through the art world with success.

Says a past delegate: “Wow – was left so inspired by your seminar! I have so much to work for and look forward to. You all shared so much passion for the art world that I really do want to be part of it on a much bigger scale and you made me feel that it really is possible”.
