Evolve arts and skills workshops

Evolve 2018 banner

The Evolve arts and skills workshops return in 2018 with a diverse offering of practical and professional development sessions to cater for a wide range of interests, ages and needs.

The program is open to everyone including emerging and established artist, or anyone who loves to get creative.

Running throughout August, the program will offer a number of affordable artist-led workshops in photography, brush lettering, screen printing, artist marketing and visual diary development and much more. 

The program creates opportunities for the community to learn from some of the state’s most talented and experienced practising artists and offers a  unique chance for people to get hands-on, practical and theoretical advice from industry leaders and experts.

Evolve was introduced in 2014 and runs alongside the City's annual Emerging Artist Award.
