During the 2021 Artist Discussion Peer Support sessions, we have been discussing what it means to be an artist and the skills now required to pursue an artistic career or practice. We came to the conclusion that as artists we often have questions we really need to ask but sometimes feel embarrassed or unable to ask or just don’t know where to find the information we need.
To help us all and to guide each other, I have set up an anonymous way to ask those burning questions relating to your practice. I will post questions on the @artdiscussterm social media accounts for other artists to respond with their thoughts.
- How do artists apply for funding?
- Should my artistic practice cover different mediums and topics or should I refine and channel my practice into one subject, medium or area?
- Artist mentorship or find your own way?
