 The (Fine) Art of Curating:

A conversation about realising contemporary exhibitions

The (Fine) Art of Opportunity: Generation, Inspiration, Canniness and Chance

 

Most of us recognise that the recipe for making your own luck requires ingredients of determination, resilience and hard work, but also being open to possibilities, a willingness to move organically and flexibly, and the art of persuasion. Come and hear artist and curator Rosalind Davis talk about that slippery customer opportunity, what it involves and how to spot it, create it, take advantage of it, network for it, and maximise it.
