Portfolio Surgery for Contemporary Visual Artists

20 June 2011 / 13:00 - 19:00

Creative Industries Trafford and Castlefield Gallery team up to offer a day of portfolio sessions for contemporary visual artists with leading art professionals.

Portfolio viewers: Paulette Terry Brien, Co-director at The International 3 www.international3.com, Clarissa Corfe, Curator at Castlefield Gallery, Jane Rolo, Director at Book Works www.bookworks.org.uk

With expertise in areas such as curation, the art market and publishing, the portfolio viewers will be able to provide critical feedback and advice on professional practice, marketing, fundraising and finding the right platforms for artwork.

With the help of the portfolio viewer, participants will create a simple action plan and will be offered a follow-up session planned for later in the year.

Booking: Please register your interest for the Portfolio Surgery by emailing info@creativeindustriestrafford.org. Include your name, address, a contact telephone number and a statement of 50 words or less outlining your artistic practice and the reason for wanting a portfolio review. Statements will be used to select successful applicants and to best match applicants to a portfolio viewer.
Successful applicants will be issued with a 30 minute session. There will be a fee of 5.00 for successful applicants.
