Workshop Series Set to Tour Newfoundland and Labrador

Visual Artists Newfoundland and Labrador is pleased to announce that it is launching a Professional Development Workshop series in the new year, with two workshops that will travel to several different locations. The workshops, Presenting Your Artwork Professionally, and Grant-Writing for Visual Artists, will tour to Lab City-Wabush, Happy Valley-Goose Bay, Corner Brook, Gander and St. John’s in February and March 2010. Facilitated by visual artist Marlene Creates, these sessions will be a combination of presentation and hands-on workshop.

“The workshop series is an important step towards offering more services to all areas of the province.”, states Executive Director Sara Tilley. “We are thrilled to be initiating this project and hope that visual artists from across Newfoundland and Labrador will take advantage of Ms Creates’ considerable knowledge and experience by participating.”

Presenting Your Artwork Professionally deals with creating artist statements, professional CV’s, artwork documentation and submission packages for public galleries, artist-run centres and commercial dealers. Bring an artist statement and CV to be workshopped.

Grant-Writing for Visual Artists will give in-depth advice on developing applications for various funding sources. Bring a project description to be workshopped.

Both of these workshops are supported by the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA). Presenting Your Artwork Professionally is also supported by the Newfoundland and Labrador Arts Council.
