About this Event

Easel's annual Careers in the Arts Fair is designed to celebrate the broad and diverse range of jobs and opportunities in the art industry.

Through a series of carefully curated panel discussions and an array of businesses, institutions, charities and start-ups on offer, we aim to represent the art world's ecosystem.

We want attendees to feel inspired to explore opportunities in the art industry and encouraged to speak to those that work in it.

Panel Discussions will explore the nuts and bolts of the art world, how to start an art business and what the future of the art industry looks like.

Over 30+ industry leaders will be representing auction houses, art publishing, charities, commercial galleries, digital technologies, finance, higher education, law, museums and much more.
