Degree show season is upon us. The boards are up, the work is on the wall, the invites have been sent out and hell yeah you’re feeling proud! Now is the time to ride that creative wave and start thinking about your next creative steps. If you’re planning to keep making work and intend to start the long journey developing an arts career – mastering the application process should definitely now be one of your priorities. There are golden opportunities waiting to be applied to.

For this one-off workshop, (three days of free events centred around collaboration, connecting artists and knowledge sharing), I’ll be delivering a crash course on how to give your applications the best start. Working in a small workshop environment we will look at example commission applications to learn what is a good opportunity and what should be avoided. This will be followed with practical tips on how to make your application stand out – to consider networking, writing, and how to prepare your example images. And finally, although no one wants to bring the mood down, we will explore how to cope with rejection in a positive way.
