Aimed at emerging artists, this workshop will breakdown and clarify the process of applying for a gallery exhibition, an art residency, or other art-related programming.

Participants will gain insight into the principles and strategies for writing coherent and concise project proposals, artist statements and resumes. The composition and sequence of the digital portfolio will also be addressed. This convivial workshop will provide artists with a set of professional tools that will strengthen their application package and boost their chances at standing out. 

This workshop is open to students and recent alumni of Concordia University’s Faculty of Fine Arts.
