Artsadmin Sweatshops are informal hands-on afternoon sessions focusing on a key area of artistic or professional development. Each Sweatshop is free and open to 12 artists, facilitated by members of Artsadmin's advisory and producing team and sometimes invited guests. Each year we offer seven Sweatshops on topics including Participation, Documentation, Marketing, Finance and How to Apply to Grants for the Arts.
Feedback from Past Sweatshops:
"I thought the Workshop was brilliant… the whole afternoon got me thinking in really practical, solid ways”
"I found the balance of having two voices leading the Workshop useful, and between you, you drew out a lot of knowledge from the group which we could then all benefit from."
"It was great to have support, encouragement and, more than anything, the possibility of asking questions and understanding the practicalities"
"I have come away with a far better grasp of how to deal with the 'beast'… Now it is less daunting"
"My application for funding from the Arts Council was successful! I know with complete certainty that this wouldn't have happened without the guidance I received on the Sweatshop”
