Creative Industries

Curated by the Umbrella team Creative Industries has been delivered by Umbrella staff, artists, academics and industry professionals since 2020. The program focuses on art development, artist tool-kit expansion and critical art world discussions. In-person workshops and online sessions are scheduled for 2021 and beyond.

Recent sessions have included Social Media for Artists; Writing Art Texts and Exhibition Applications; Photography for Artists; and Websites for Artists, which have been well received and will likely be run again. Keep an eye on Umbrella's Public Programs for upcoming sessions.  

The following sessions were also run online in 2020 (and can still be accessed via the links below).

Creative Industries Session #2 – The Arts Economy in a Time of Corona

Creative Industries Session #3 – Artist Grant Applications
