Event description
A free, four-part workshop series for immigrant, refugee, Indigenous, Black, and artists of colour.

About this Event


Join a free career development course by Cultural Pluralism in the Arts Movement Ontario (CPAMO) Network Ottawa* to elevate your art business skills and build a resilient art career in the new normal. The course is open for artists and creatives of all disciplines.

The program consists of four hands-on workshops and a graduation showcase. It focuses on topics of self-presentation, online presence, e-commerce and valuable networking opportunities and connections to the local arts sector. A graduation showcase will be the cherry on top to feature the participants’ artistic works from all disciplines. You can participate in individual workshops and don’t have to commit to the whole program to take the course.

Our first workshop “Present Yourself” is coming on February 17 and is dedicated to building a compelling artistic CV, bio and artist statement. Working in a format of a “clinic” you are invited to learn from art professionals Jamaal Jackson Rogers, Laurena Finéus, and Melanie Yugo and collaborate with your peers to walk away with something you’ll be proud to put on your website.

Due to projected registration, we will prioritize immigrant, refugee, Indigenous, Black, and artists of colour, first come, first serve.

This event will include facilitators that speak French and Spanish and will be available to give language support.
