I’ve been asked to take part in Focal Point Gallery’s “Things you never get taught” series of events… All are welcome – please join us for the event if these topics are of interest to you!

Please note:

  • Headphones are recommended for this session during which there will an opportunity to listen to artworks. An audio description will accompany this for anyone who would benefit from it.
  • A live speech to text transcriber will be present to assist.

As tech becomes the rising star in contemporary art practice, how much time are we taking to consider the impact of the brief lifetime of technology and inevitable obsolescence, taking an insurmountable number of devices to landfill?

“Things you never get taught…” is a series of free development workshops for artists, arts organisations and those who want to develop their cultural offer. This series focuses on essential skills that might be overlooked by formal arts education, such as writing funding applications, submitting your taxes and developing a career as an artist.
