Art as a Career!

You CAN make art your career!

Event Info

Join GAC and BCGW for a workshop that will help you prepare to thrive in your arts career!

Having a career in the arts can look so different for everyone and often requires much more than just the creation of beautiful paintings or songs. We will take you through the resources and opportunities available to artists in Guelph, the concerns within the industry and how to get your foot in the door of your arts career. Our workshop will cover careers that revolve around creating art, as well as the important work that arts organizations/businesses do within this community

You can create budgets, business plans, and market your product or service with the best of them but you will be missing out on one of the most valuable aspects to an arts career: The Community. Connecting with other artists and creatives is key to success in any arts community, that's why the second half of this workshop will bring together a panel of 3-4 creatives from Guelph to talk about their careers and experiences.
