Simon Fell presents “The Artists Space” – A workshop for artists taking place in Brighton .
What is it?
A one day workshop for 6-10 people, women and men, any age over 18, working in any media who define themselves as artists. This is opportunity to explore and resolve some of the questions involved in being an artist now.
What’s it about?
This is a workshop about the highs and lows of being an artist. Participants will investigate what is good and what is difficult about the role of artist for each of us. The core purpose of the group is to develop the skills of reflection and listening – especially to yourself. The work is focused on the individual with the group acting as both support and a mirror
The intention of the event is to create a space and an atmosphere where it is safe to explore the many questions and contradictions that arise from choosing to be an artist. Almost by definition working as an artist involves taking risks and a certainty of some degree of failure. How do you process the experimental aspect of this career choice?
The role of artist offers us a great opportunity for individuality and diversity but that comes with a lot of pressure to get the attention of an audience. Are you constrained by market forces and artistic trends to moderate or modify your work?
What will it cost?
£60 for a day workshop (11am-5pm)
