There will be a broad presentation covering principles, proposal elements and tips, followed by an open Q & A session facilitated by Emil and ArtdotWork's Amberleigh Carson.

A former lecturer in Photo Media at Whitecliffe College of Arts & Design, Emil now works primarily as an independent art writer and researcher, also mentoring selected emerging artists, running workshops and leading tours of local galleries. His art work examines the cultural roles of the artist: as medium, activist, citizen and public intellectual. He works across a range of media and publishes widely as an essayist, critic and commentator.

Goal Setting with Veronica Herber

When:   Saturday August 8, 10am - 2:30pm

Where:  Toi Ora Live Art Trust, 6 Putiki Street, Grey Lynn, Auckland

Price:     $90

 

Artist and experienced business coach Veronica Herber will present
this workshop, “From my experience as a business coach focusing on values,
I learned that goals need to be personally tailored for each
person to keep their inspiration alive. Whenever setting goals, I
first ask questions about what is important to that individual. It is
surprising how everyone has such different motivations so it
is important to discover what drives them.”

The day will be structured around questions to identify each
participants values. We then take these results to create a step by step
practical process to help each person plan their next 6 to 12 months
with a 5 year goal in mind.

The session will be fast moving, interesting
and fun with concrete outcomes to take away.

Before becoming a full time contemporary artist Veronica Herber was a successful business coach in Christchurch. Now fully immersed in her art practice, she still enjoys sharing practical goal setting knowledge with others, particularly those in the creative industries.
