(Artist) Life School Workshop & Toi Ōtautahi Arts Dinner

Free entry. Registration required, please email honey@physicsroom.org.nz to secure a spot.

Venue: Toi Auaha, 5 Worcester Boulevard, Christchurch Central City


Panel Discussion: Jobs and Roles in the Art World

The creative field is made up of many different roles, but where do we find out about them? And how do we make it into these positions? It can be intimidating navigating a career in the arts, regardless of how long you’ve been on the scene. This event sets out to shine a light on some jobs that the art world has to offer, hearing directly from the people working in them.

This session of (Artist) Life School offers insight into the careers of individuals working within the arts ecosystem. Three local arts professionals will speak on the odd jobs, voluntary and paid roles, and creative initiatives they’ve been involved in, and the paths that have taken them there.

(Artist) Life School is a series developed by Audrey Baldwin for The Physics Room. It brings together contemporary artists to further develop professional skills, and sets out to answer the curly questions around maintaining a practice out in the world. Ideal for recent graduates and emerging artists, each workshop hosts an industry professional to discuss the realities of making, resourcing, and showing your work. This is the seventh event in the (Artist) Life School series.

Bring your notebook; refreshments will be supplied. This event will be audio recorded, and subsequently posted on our website.


Toi Ōtautahi Arts Dinner

Following the panel discussion there will be a shared potluck dinner. This is a time to hang out together, meet other local artists and creatives, and have a good feed.

All are welcome to attend – please bring a plate (preferably bread or soup accompanying things!), and for catering purposes, please RSVP to honey@physicsroom.org.nz
