A portfolio ”is a collection of your work, which shows how your skills and ideas have developed over a period of time. It demonstrates your creativity, personality, abilities and commitment, and helps us to evaluate your potential.”
Easy, right? Easier said than done.
What are the specifics of a portfolio nowadays?
What format does a Portfolio have?
What kind of content and information should you include, and how can you adapt it for various audiences (think curator, gallery owner, on-line selling platform or magazine)?
How should you approach the intended recipient?
How should you deliver your portfolio to them?
What are the big dos and don’ts?
What should you focus on?
Our guest speakers offer you their answers to these questions and some key lessons from their experiences of working with young artists.
The workshop is divided in 2 events and is tailored to provide artists and young cultural professionals with expert knowledge about the PORTFOLIO.
