Amplifier Art Talks

Young and emerging artists: find out how to get your work out there, how to interact with curators and programmers, and how to optimise tax breaks and funding! Propel Youth Arts WA invited West Australian creatives from all artforms to the Amplifier Art Talk series of arts industry networking and information forums, and you can view these talks anytime online.

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?
