Engaging Arts Series Workshops

For 2014, CARFAC BC is offering a series of professional workshops for artists across the province that will take a more in-depth and hands-on approach at the business of art. Tackling the themes brought up in our public panels, workshops will focus on making a living as artists through commissions, public art, grants, and how to get into galleries and festivals. Participants will gain insider knowledge, contacts and skills that will further their professional abilities and assist them in thriving as artists in British Columbia. These workshops will be part lecture, part practical project and in some cases peer consultation. After winter workshops in Victoria, CARFAC BC is pleased to present a series in Vancouver. Check back soon to see updates, or join us on Facebook. Thanks to our generous sponsors BC Arts Council and City of Vancouver
