AiD Artist Talk
Platform Art Projects
Through the Art Maze exhibition I was contacted by another artist asking me if I would be interested in giving a three hour artist's talk at an artists run space Platform Arts near Loughborough Junction, SW9. Esther Lamontagne who runs Platform Arts and Meanwhile Space has also invited me to get involved with a new project that looks at art and mental illness. I have therefore had to look at recommended artists payments via a-n magazine and sign an agreement. This will be a paid opportunity.
I have had to sign an agreement and have been in touch with Lizy Bending who works at Artshead.co.uk. Lizy will promote the talks. Here's a brief outline of what Artshead say about their organisation:
"artshead work with arts and cultural organisations across London and the UK, offering a wide range of bespoke marketing tools to develop new and existing audiences, cultivate organisational profiles and generate ticket sales. We are based in London and carry out the majority of work there and also work across the UK on projects that require bespoke audience targets."(sic)
The talk has been arranged to take place on 15th May 2016. I will be using this opportunity to present my work through PowerPoint to demonstrate my journey to this point in my career and talk about my MFA course. I will be sharing a questionnaire entitled 'Are You in Love With Your Phone?'
