Open Doors with Art Fund

As part of Free Range, the annual season of graduate art and design exhibitions in London, we're hosting a weekend of free talks on making your mark in the art world.

Are you looking to gain practical knowledge for carving out your space in the art world?

Join us at Free Range at The Old Truman Brewery in London from 7-10 July 2017 and make our art network your art network, as we bring leading artists, curators and industry professionals together in a series of talks to explore the many possibilities within the art sector, and help you shape your art future.

You’ll hear from: curators and artists on how they founded their own art enterprises; experts in nurturing creative talent and personal branding; museum creatives - from commercial directors and fundraisers to heads of design; and internationally acclaimed artists including Lawrence Lek and Jeremy Deller.

Find out how they got to where they are today, and plan your creative career. Booking is essential, so please take a look at the schedule of talks below and book your free place today.
