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.
