CreativeCapital is hosting a series of speaker/network events this November, focusing on professional development and career advice for artists. They are artform specific, free, and feature important guest speakers from the worlds of writing, visual arts and crafts, new media and film, and theatre facilitation.

Time to Find Out About: New Media, Artists’ Moving Image and Film will be an opportunity for artists who incorporate technology into their work from sonic arts, animation, mixed media performance, film and video, as well as those who would like to explore this field in more depth, to hear from four experts in the field of professional development.

Come and find out about the training, advice and career development on offer for new media practitioners, artists who work with the moving image and filmmakers; engage in debate with and ask questions of our speakers; network and discuss your work with other practitioners in a relaxed, friendly environment.
