On December 13 and 20, at 7:30 PM, Francis Corabœuf, a cultural manager from France, will hold workshops on self-promotion for Ukrainian artists at IZOLYATSIA.
Based on his work for several art institutions around the world, Francis will share his experience and advice. How to tell the world about your artistic practice and ideas? What is the best way to present yourself on the contemporary art scene? What do you need to do to make others see your work?
The first seminar will deal with opportunities of self-representation on the internet, creating a website, using social media, generating content, acquiring a useful habit of documentation, as well as basic requirements to the texts about your work and their English translation.
At the second seminar, Francis will explain how to apply for grants, residencies, collective projects, and biennales, and where to look for new opportunities and partners.
