Websites for artists

Join Umbrella's Gallery Manager Daniel Qualischefski for a session providing instructions and tips for artists to set up their own basic websites. Daniel will provide pros and cons for a number of website platforms that artists can use, and speak through basic instructions for creating a free or paid website. This session will also provide artists with an understanding of the time it takes to create a website versus the alternatives - i.e. paying a web developer or using social media pages in lieu of a website. 

Participants are encouraged to attend the previous Creative Industries workshops so that they already have information about appropriate images, texts and social media links to include on their website. Participants should bring their own laptops or devices with these digital files pertaining to their arts practice included - i.e. artwork images / photographs, PDF files of artist statements, texts about artworks and an artist CV. 

Limited to 12 spaces | Bookings close 5pm Monday 20 September 2021.
This workshop will take place in Umbrella Studio Contemporary Arts, 408 Flinders St, Townsville. Please account for travel and parking time and arrive 5mins early to check in and take your seat.

To apply for an exhibition at Umbrella, you must be a current Umbrella member so this is recommended now for this discount. This workshop is one of a series within Umbrella's 2021 Creative Industries program. The workshops will provide valuable tips and insights for those looking to apply for an exhibition and to improve their online presence as a practicing artist. Please note that the previous Creative Industries sessions that ran online in 2020 were subsidised, while the small workshop fees now contribute to the artists' and staff time.

Daniel Qualischefski is an artist and arts professional who has worked in regional and contemporary galleries in south-east Queensland, Melbourne and most recently North Queensland. His roles have encompassed managing and coordinating exhibitions, marketing, public programs and collection management. Daniel holds a Master of Arts and Cultural Management from the University of Melbourne, a Bachelor of Visual Arts and a Bachelor of Visual Arts (Creative Arts), Honours from the University of Southern Queensland. He is passionate about contemporary (particularly Australian) art, making art accessible and engaging audiences with innovative exhibition designs, curation and programs. Daniel's curatorial interests lie in recontextualising collections and forging and showcasing collaborations. Daniel also creates multi-disciplinary artwork under the pseudonym of Danish Quapoor. He works primarily in a distinctive illustrative and flat-colour style in which organic, geometric and stylised forms float amidst sparse compositions. His practice includes ceramics, textiles, painting and drawing. The artist finds that making art informs his work in galleries (and vice versa).
