Fame & fortune –sustaining your artistic practice

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.
