Panel Discussion

Routes for emerging artists – negotiating funding and public galleries

Saturday 26 May 2018, 1pm - 3pm

This is the second in a series of networking and discussion events organised by Visual Arts Scotland. It takes the form of a panel discussion, aimed at recently graduated artists and makers who want help and advice negotiating the world of funding and approaching public galleries. Although aimed at recent graduates, the points discussed will be relevant to any artist at any stage.
