About this Event

How can arts students and emerging artists re-imagine the careers they could pursue? What are the emergent, entrepreneurial, or unexpected career paths that arts grads have taken? A group of diverse arts trailblazers will share stories and lessons learned. Students, artists and creatives of all disciplines, ages and experience levels are welcome.The three-hour session begins at 6 pm on Thursday, January 30, 2020 at the Art Gallery of Guelph, 358 Gordon St, Guelph, and includes intro presentations, a panel discussion and Q&A, and networking. Confirmed speakers include Sally Frater, Tory Miles, and Alex Ricci, University of Guelph graduates who’ve been innovative in their arts careers. Sally is currently the Curator of Contemporary Art at the Art Gallery of Guelph with a BFA in Studio Art and MA in Contemporary Art from The University of Manchester/Sotheby’s Institute of Art. Tory is a digital matte painter and concept artist, classically trained in painting, whose credits include The Shape of Water and Hellboy. Alex leads audiovisual collective VERSA with Monika Hauck. VERSA creates powerful instrumental music written around live looping bass guitar, and pairs it with responsive projections that visualize sound. Other presenters will be announced.The workshop is free but registration is appreciated.
