Event Details

How do you maintain your practice and pay the bills? How do you achieve a balance between creating artwork and your other jobs? In this special event for artists, discover different strategies and ways of working to manage your creative career.

We’ll start with a panel discussion featuring artists working across different platforms who have devised various solutions to their career challenges, including Nicole Monks, Bree Pickering, Bek Conroy, Abdul Abdullah, Alex Wisser and Toby Chapman. The conversation will be facilitated by artist Nat Randall.

The panel will be followed by a creative session facilitated by Heather Whitely Robertson (creative thinking facilitator and Head of Learning and Participation, Art Gallery of New South Wales) to brainstorm practical outcomes for participants.

Presented by the Art Gallery of NSW and Create NSW.

Access and Inclusion

  • Wheelchair accessible - Access to the venue is suitable for wheelchairs (toilets, ramps/lifts etc.) and designated wheelchair spaces are available.
  • Auslan Interpreted - Auslan interpreted events are for audiences who are Deaf and use Australian Sign Language (Auslan) as their primary means of communication. Experienced Auslan theatre interpreters stand to the side of the stage and translate what the speakers are saying or Auslan signing the text and dialogue live. Audiences requiring this service are seated in the section closest to the interpreter to ensure good sightlines.
  • Hearing loop - A hearing loop (sometimes called an audio induction loop) is a special type of sound system for use by people with hearing aids. The hearing loop provides a magnetic, wireless signal that is picked up by the hearing aid when it is set to 'T' (Telecoil) setting. Many venues have an induction hearing loop system. Check if your venue has this system.
