Propel Youth Arts WA invited West Australian creatives from all artforms to the pilot Amplifier Art Talk, Propel’s new regular series of arts industry networking and information forums.
Amplifier was conceived by Propel as a workshop and forum series aimed at improving the arts business skills of young and emerging artists and arts workers in WA. The goal of the Amplifier Art Talk panel discussions - was to help give artists the skills to make their practice or project commercially viable.
The continuing series covers how to get your work out there, how to interact with curators and programmers, how to optimise tax breaks and funding, promotion, pushing artistic boundaries, ethics within the arts industry, ethical obligations as an artist and is there space for ethics within the arts at all?

Amplifier Art Talk: Art vs. Ethics?
Amplifier was first conceived as a workshop and forum series aimed at improving the arts business skills of young and emerging artists and arts workers in WA; to help give them the skills to make their practice or project commercially viable.
In 2013, after realising that that this type of information needed to be available on an ongoing basis for all emerging artists, Propel created the Amplifier Arts Business Guide for Creative People! To complement this guide, Propel also holds one off networking and information forums that give emerging artists the opportunity to ask questions, meet industry representatives and further develop their arts business skills.
Made for talented emerging West Australian creatives, we hope this guide and workshop series will help to give you an edge when developing your arts project or business.
Inside this guide you will find a range of topics including marketing your arts business, applying for grants, getting published, finding venues and spaces, project management, pricing your products, arts law and finance. You’ll also find interviews from some amazing local artists and some hints and tips about where to go for even more information.
