We would like to invite you to our first event of 2017, ARTernative Careers, in collaboration with the Visual Arts Society on the 12th January!
Next Thursday, we’ll be hosting the evening panel discussion about the events available in Art-related creative industries. Often, artists are seen as the bulk of the careers that make up the sector and we hope to debunk this myth. From working in auction houses to museums, come along to find out more about what the Art world has to offer and how you can put your quantitative or qualitative skills to good use!
