Work On is a workshop series giving insights from the worlds of visual art, theatre, journalism and film about routes for getting work put on.
What are the approaches? Who is involved in decision-making and how are relationships developed? What do these industries look for in commissioning or producing work?
Managing and Funding Projects:
A curator has an idea for an exhibition with a few artist friends. A filmmaker has hosted a few screenings in their community and is looking to take their work further. A journalism graduate is looking for practical steps to getting into the industry. A theatre-maker comes up with a story idea they want to develop into a performance piece.
Now what? How do creatives go from a potential project to having it resourced and what is this middle ground journey?
