Being an artist and an entrepreneur at the same time can be challenging, that is why we host sessions and gatherings that help artists develop their professional career
We developed three formats to stimulate the career development of artists:
- smARTdates – a one day event bringing together talented artists and offering them the opportunity to meet 1o+ curators, museum directors and major collectors during one-on-one speeddate sessions.
Edition I & II where in collaboration with and took place at Stedelijk Museum Schiedam
- FurtureProof?! – an in-depth event that focusses on the career development and specifically on vision, ambition and networking based on a round table format to deepdive into the topics
- Career Development Canvas – masterclasses on career development and networking, based on the House of Professional Growth and the Building Blocks of Career Development. We regularly speak/coach on topics relating to entrepreneurship, business development, financing and networking at knowledge events or summer schools organised by centre for arts and culture, museums or academies
Additionally, we coach and support the artists of whom we bought work for the Open Collection or collaborated with within our co-production or kickstART program.
