The Essentials: Professional Development Series 2021

Outer Space is excited to announce our professional development series for 2021: The Essentials. In this series we’ll be sharing vital information for artists and arts workers with the assistance of industry leaders.

Over the course of thirteen workshops, you have the opportunity to learn protocols around Indigenous artmaking, building a website, best practice for application writing, how to manage your  finances, documentation of work, communicating your practice, conservation of your work, and adapting your practice for the digital in these new strange times! These free workshops will provide you the opportunity to listen, question, develop your skills, and hone your practice. 

These individual sessions will be primarily delivered in-person at our new office location in the Judith Wright Arts Centre (JWAC), Fortitude Valley, with a small selection presented online only. Each session will be live-streamed, or accompanied by an online video instruction. The Essentials workshop series is suitable for all skill levels - no experience required. Please ensure you register via the Eventbrite links - numbers limited due to restrictions.
