Granted: Negotiating public art and commissioning projects
Friday 28 February 2014 at 10.30am-4pm

Created, developed and delivered by Frances Lord».

This seminar enables artists either new to public art, or wishing to develop their practice in the commissioning field, to gain insight into practical issues such as making proposals, responding to briefs, working within budgets, dealing with contracts, copyright and other legal issues. The seminar will also look at the potential for artists to work on large-scale installations or interventions in the public sphere. The seminar starts with a slide show of nationally and internationally sourced public art and commissioning case studies to stimulate discussion.

During the seminar we will look at:

- What sort of skills do you need?
- Identifying and responding to opportunities & briefs
- What makes a strong project proposal & presentation
- Creating your own brief and developing partnerships
- Matching aspirations to budgets
- Contracts

Open to all artists and individuals working in the arts such as curators and project managers.

Tickets for this event are £10. Costs are subsidised by Appetite and a-n, The Artists Information Company.
