Working with Artists in the Shifting Gallery Landscape
Launch Event for Bow Skills Lab
Bow Skills Lab is a professional development programme for artists by artists
With Keynote from Ceri Hand Working with Artists in the Shifting Gallery Landscape
To celebrate our 20th Anniversary, we are launching a dynamic and relevant programme of Continuing Professional Development (CPD). It is led by Bow Arts’ artist Elizabeth Murton, in consultation with an artists' steering group and informed by artist feedback. We have designed a programme with and for our community of artists to help them develop their careers.
About the night: We are delighted to welcome Ceri Hand as our keynote speaker. With 25 years working in the arts, Ceri will cover her experience of commissioning and exhibiting artists in diverse settings, good practice, top tips for artists and an overview of the changing gallery landscape.
The talk will end with a Q&A where Ceri will be joined by Rob Smith, Head of Education and Learning at Bow Arts, Rosamond Murdoch Gallery Director at Bow Arts and a Bow Artist. Rob brokers partnerships across different settings and commissioners, works with artists to run education programmes and develop public art works. Rosamond directs the Nunnery Gallery at Bow Arts and exhibitions such as the East London Painting Prize.
