The art world can be a confusing and difficult space to navigate, especially when keeping pace with changing trends, expectations and technology.

Do you struggle writing your artist statement? Don’t know how to write a grant application? Get lost writing your exhibition proposal? We’re here to help!

 

Are you a Canberra-based recent graduate, an emerging artist, a mid-career artist or someone who would like to get a better understanding of what skills are needed to gain a place in the contemporary art world? Then this course is for you!

 

Writing Proposals and Applications focusses on the following activities:

• Introduction and key tips for writing clear proposals and applications – overview of grant applications, exhibition proposals, pitching work

• Part 2. Looking at examples of actual proposals and applications - break out group discussions

• Drilling down - budgets, project descriptions, writing about work that doesn't exist yet

 

Sustainable Creative Careers: Approaches to Writing, Proposals and Applications, and Writing for the Web will be taught by Ellis Hutch, artist and educator. Ellis Hutch is a visual artist and lecturer at the Australian National University School of Art & Design. Ellis’s teaching interests span drawing, sculpture, installation, video and performance art, and art theory.
