The City of Fremantle is pleased to offer artists and makers direct access to experienced arts consultant and media identity, Paula Silbert when she brings her two day visual arts professional development workshop to Fremantle Arts Centre.

A scholarship of $165 will be awarded by the City of Fremantle to the first 30 artists enrolled in this solution-driven workshop, so they’ll pay just $295 for two days of essential knowledge and action.

Sessions include:

• being an exhibitionist–solo, group, pop-up, open studio
• finding your fans and leading them to your exhibition
• OMG! My art doesn’t speak for itself! What your clients, fans and media expect you to be able to say(media releases, speeches, interviews, gallery tours and artist statements)
• brushing up your five year plan and getting ready to succeed
• 40 really, really, really important things for visual artists to know
• hands-on planning sessions with professional and peer feedback.
