UpSkilling Young Artists at VET School

UpSkilling Young Artists at VET School

After the meeting in Helsinki (Finland), the project partners started working on the content for the “Marketing for Artists - Training Course”.
Education In Progress SPAIN is in charge of developing Unit 3 “Design of promotional services, marketing plan and communication strategy for artistic and cultural goods and services”.

While looking for interesting materials that can support VET Art Teachers in becoming more skilled with Marketing in the field of art, we have found relevant information related to “Creation of an Artistic Proposal”. Basically, what artists need to learn is how to structure an art proposal, practice writing, create videos, and find teamwork opportunities and many different ways of collaboration.

Within the “Marketing for Artists” project, we are preparing several materials and practical exercises that teachers can use in their classes, but we also found it interesting to have a look at the book of Gigi Rosenberg “The artist's guide to grant writing“.

The book by Gigi Rosenberg “The artist's guide to grant writing“ is very interesting and offers an effective perspective on writing methods and how to find art funding, as well as a few steps to make the art proposal unique. Also networking among artists is one of the important things that provide new opportunities in various ways, to set up an Alternative Exhibition Space is one of that.

To acquire a simple, but effective way of expressing the art proposals is fundamental to making your intentions understandable to the funders. As well as predicting a suitable and clear budget request, and providing multimedia resources that can show better your artwork proposal, give to the artists added value to their proposal.

Do you like your students can apply too?
Well, it is always good to make some practice. Only practice makes you better and more expert.
