Writing About Your Work’ with Joanne Laws (1.30 – 4.30pm)

As an artist, you are required to write about your work for press releases, marketing purposes and for proposals or applications. The ability to convey information concisely in well-written artist’s statements, biographies and CVs will assist people in gaining an understanding of your practice.

This session will provide a workshopped approach to developing your artist’s statement, involving writing exercises and peer feedback. Joanne will discuss dos and don’ts when preparing artists’ statements and CVs. She will assist you to develop appropriate, clear and concise language to describe your work in a way that makes it engaging, personal and accessible to most readers.
