What is it?

As an artist you can find many routes to market, places to sell your talent, artwork or promote yourself as an artist, and even find calls, commissions etc. But where are these routes and why or how should you use them?

This workshop is designed to showcase a range of ideas and resources that can help you sell more. It will provide great ideas on getting your artwork to market, along with demystifying some of the traditional mind-sets that stop you as an artist to become enterprising and more successful.

We compare some of the online marketplaces and enthuse you with tactics to help you find routes to market along with group discussions and ideas for your creative enterprise to move forward in positive way.

Who is it for?

This workshop is for Dorset, Bournemouth and Poole based artists, makers and creatives only.

This workshop is ideal for new and established people in all creative visual art industries, small businesses, start-ups, community groups, and organisations that wish to expand their reach and sales.

What will you go away with?

Attendees will go away with a clearer understanding of where and what is required to find new ways to selling their work or uplifting their reputation.  You’ll also learn some tips and tricks and get the opportunity to network with like-minded individuals.

Who is speaking?
