Evolve Development Programme
The Evolve. development programme, introduced in 2014, runs alongside the City's annual Emerging Artist Award.The 2016 programme featured free and affordable workshops in screen printing, illustration, felting as well as artist talks and grant writing information sessions. Workshops were run by industry professionals including artists James Foley, The Articulate, Louise Snook and Bonnie Boogaard, the Department of Culture and the Arts and peak industry body, Artsource.
Over 150 community members attended the workshops including emerging and established artists as well as those who simply wished to expand their learning in the arts.
The programme creates opportunities for the community to learn from some of the state’s most talented and experienced practising artists and offers a really unique chance for people to get hands-on, practical and theoretical advice from industry leaders and experts.
Details about the 2017 programme will be announced in July, so stay tuned.
