ARTRIGHT Workshop in KwaZulu Natal
ArtRight is a new on-line platform which aims to build professional practice in the visual arts through the creation of tools, templates and advisory resources which address a range of legal, financial and general business issues for people working in the industry. VANSA would like to invite you to an industry briefing and feedback session related to the project, which we are co-developing with Brendan Copestake and the WITS School of Arts.
The development of the resource as something relevant and meaningful relies on the active participation of people in our industry – we want it to be informed by your needs, experience and expertise. Thusfar we have benefitted from contributions from a significant number of leading professionals in the content areas addressed by the site, from gallerists and auction houses through to lawyers and insurance specialists. Visit the site-in-progress at: www.artright.co.za.
We are hoping to expand this network to KZN, building on the Art Savvy workshops that have become a regular feature of the Durban visual arts calendar. We want to use this informal gathering to open up discussion on the professional practice issues that affect you, get feedback on the site as it is, as well as to identify new areas for content development and new potential contributors. The session will be relevant for a wide range of people working in the visual arts - artists, dealers, gallerists and administrators through to art lecturers in tertiary institutions and legal professionals.
