This unique eight-part course equips undergraduates, recent graduates, and career changers with the tools to orient themselves in what might, at the outset, feel like alien territory. Participants will hear from and have the opportunity to network with experienced professionals in the public and commercial art worlds, including auctioneers, gallerists, curators, and art lawyers.
Sessions are facilitated by the Course Leader and students are encouraged to participate in both group discussions and a Q&A at the end of each session. The course concludes with a panel discussion during which students can ask questions of speakers from throughout the course and exchange ideas with their peers.
This Intensive Course consists of live-streamed lectures and discussions. Recordings of the live sessions are accessible anytime during the course via our online learning platform, Canvas.
Students will learn:
- To develop an understanding of the changing landscape of careers in the visual arts, specifically in the UK and Europe
- To identify and benefit from opportunities to grow your network with individuals, organisations and institutions
- To research a wide variety of employment opportunities—from internships and entry level positions, to mid-career changes and independent, freelance work
