Upcoming workshops:

Finances for Funding Applications with Robert Westall of Naked Accounting

When:   Saturday August 22, 10am - 12pm

Where:  Studio One Toi Tu, 1 Ponsonby Rd Auckland

Price:     $45

 

In the current COVID-climate, there is a remarkable number of funding opportunities available for artists. In order to secure these opportunities, 9 times out of 10 you are required to present fairly accurate financial information, so we've created a workshop around exactly this.

 

We'll be sharing advice on how to create budgets for specific projects, detailing what a 'profit and loss' is (and how to read it!), as well as covering budgeting in general. This will be followed by a question and answer session, so come with questions, queries and comments!"

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

Art and Design, while similar, are quite different disciplines. Understanding your brand and visual aesthetics is an important part of creative business and making your work shine when you present it to the public.

In this workshop Kate Hursthouse will talk you through the basic principles of design, and how you can use them to complement and enhance your artwork when presenting it in scenarios such as launching collections, exhibition posters and brochures, advertising, social media. She will walk you through the free design software Canva which is a great alternative for those who don’t have the Adobe Creative Suite.
