Professional Development for Artists

Banyule's series of professional development opportunities for artists.

Banyule's professional development series is presented by Pinpoint - Banyule's Creative Map.

Focusing on both the conceptual and the practical – with workshops and forums delivered by industry, peer and specialist practitioners – this series provides valuable support to Banyule's creative community in developing and maintaining a professional practice.


Upcoming Events:

Speakers include Selene Bateman (Auspicious arts Projects), Lisette Sherlock (Senior Risk / OH&S Officer) 

Thursday 19 July 2018 – 6.30pm – 8.30pm
Banyule Council Service Centre, 1 Flintoff Street Greensborough


This workshop explores the essentials of approaching the business end of working as a creative practitioner. Invoicing & ABNs, insurance & Public Liability, getting auspiced, writing risk assessments… like it or not, these are realities for all creative practitioners who want to be paid for their work. 
Suitable for anybody interested in engaging with Council's Arts & Culture Program - i.e., performing at our festivals, delivering a public workshop or art activity, applying for a Pinpoint Art in Public Spaces Grant or a Community Arts Grant.

 Free workshop, but bookings essential.
