Time for Success? Exploring Artistic Careers

​Emily Pope, The Court Summons, 2016

Join a participatory workshop exploring the relationship between time, success and art

How is life as an artist in tension with conventional working hours and linear career paths? What power do artists hold to challenge ideas of productivity? Artists' Emily Pope and Oreet Ashery will explore what constitutes achievement in the arts, alternative career models, and redefining traditional pathways.
