Created, developed and delivered by Frances Lord, Appetite is proud to announce that we’re hosting this opportunity for artists CPD at a heavily subsidised rate in association with a-n The Artists Information Company.
This seminar enables artists either new to public art, or wishing to develop their practice in the commissioning field, to gain insight into practical issues such as making proposals, responding to briefs, working within budgets, dealing with contracts, copyright and other legal issues. The seminar will also look at the potential for artists to work on large-scale installations or interventions in the public sphere. The seminar starts with a slide show of nationally and internationally sourced public art and commissioning case studies to stimulate discussion.
During the seminar we will look at:
· What sort of skills do you need?
· Identifying and responding to opportunities & briefs
· What makes a strong project proposal & presentation
· Creating your own brief and developing partnerships
· Matching aspirations to budgets
A Resources Handbook will be emailed to all participants after the seminar. Frances Lord is a consultant and curator who specialises in developing and managing public art and commissioning projects. Clients include local authorities, healthcare trusts, environmental and regeneration agencies, museums and galleries. www.franceslord.com
