Why get stuck with traditional strategies?
Kickstart your career with expert guidance.
Yes. you read that right. We meet once a week per Zoom to cover all the content. Just the two of us.
Every weekly session is a mixture of theory and personalised application of the content to your case.
Ca. 5 hours per week are needed for a take-home training task after every session.
In 10 sessions over 10 weeks, you will gain a holistic understanding of the art world, the social and unwritten rules of professional artists as well as proven real-life techniques to create your own 'art world' where you can thrive.
Plot twist: Not the way you think it's done!
Maybe you still wonder:
what is the difference between this programme and others?
The massive difference is that while other programmes are taught by artists or traditional coaches (mostly studied psychologists or counsellors) who might not have experience in the arts, THIS programme takes as its base the curatorial expertise. This means that together, we discuss the quality of your work, its power to transport your creative message and the steps that are needed to thrive in a competitive art world. This gives you the advantage of touching base with someone who has been choosing works for exhibitions for the past 6 years!
