About this Event

Guild Conversations:

Guild Conversations is a programme of workshops, talks, webinars and facilitated conversations programmed by East Street Arts. The programme aims to equip the artist-led sector with tools and resources by connecting them with artists and arts facilitators.

Working with Higher Education: An hour long live webinar with Q&A

How do artists and higher education institutions work together? What are the routes in for artists and what are the potential challenges? This session gives an overview of some different models for working with Universities and students and aims to open up and offer transparency to what can sometimes feel like an opaque and confusing process. We will discuss the challenges to independents working with large institutions and some ways to mitigate these.
