Artists Toolkit

Artists Toolkit provides ongoing support for artists, helping them to plan for and expand their practice, and maximize their ability to secure funding and other resources with a focus on the options available in the ACT. With various workshops and consultations, this initiative is part of an ongoing relationship with artsACT designed to help ACT based artists develop their practice and access funding.

Information sessions and Workshops

The Artist’s Toolkit project has featured a free public information session and a free public workshop for ACT based artists, designed to assist with developing projects and identifying resources.

INFO SESSION: Developing and Funding Your Arts Practice

Tuesday 9 October, 6pm, Gorman Arts Centre

This introductory session covered ways to help artists plan for and expand their practice, and maximize their ability to secure funding and other resources with a focus on the options available in the ACT.

WORKSHOP: Skills Night

Tuesday 11 December, 6pm, Gorman Arts Centre

This skills-based workshop focused on specific skills needs as an artist. We brainstormed ways to overcome any barriers in the way of making a strong funding application and began to identify other opportunities for artists projects.

Resources from this session are available below:

The project has also involved the presentation of tailored workshops to small groups of artists who face barriers to progressing their practice and applying for funding.

Individual consultations

ACT based artists can request a one-on-one consultation session to discuss their individual arts practice and aims in more detail with one of our Creative Producers. If you would like to access a one-on-one consultation please complete the expression of interest form here.
