Artsadmin Sweatshops are free and informal hands-on afternoon sessions focusing on a key area of artistic or professional development. Each Sweatshop is discussion-based, free and open to 12 artists, facilitated by members of the Artsadmin team and sometimes invited guests. We offer nine Sweatshops each year, on topics including: access, applying for funding, documentation, finance, marketing and participation.
Feedback from past Sweatshops:
"I thought the workshop was brilliant… the whole afternoon got me thinking in really practical, solid ways.”
"It was great to have support, encouragement and, more than anything, the possibility of asking questions and understanding the practicalities."
"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.”
Please note that if you are working primarily in scriptwriting, staged plays, traditional circus, puppetry, craft, painting, sculpture, traditional forms of dance, opera and music this is outside the focus of Artsadmin’s work.
