The New Current organizes programme for starting artists
The New Current organizes an inspiring program for starting artists. In a four-day series, experienced professionals give young creators training, advice and the tools they need for a successful career in the art business.
In preparation for Art Rotterdam Week, The New Current is launching a training programme in which young artists learn from established professionals about important elements within the art sector. Spread over four days, lectures and masterclasses are given on subjects such as entrepreneurship, making a clear (online) presentation and obtaining sustainable income.
After the academy, it is not always easy for artists to gain knowledge in the field. The art market demands specific tools that you just have to master. This is where the experience of established experts can provide the most value. The programme of lectures and workshops offers a valuable follow-up to the art academy but is also interesting for artists who have been working professionally for several years.
In addition to well-known collectors and curators such as Anne van der Zwaag (Object and Big Art) and cultural financial advisor Alexander Ramselaar, internationally renowned artists also take part in the programme. For example, the Belgian Koen Vanmechelen talks about a distinctive positioning as an artist and internet artist Constant Dullaert talks about the importance of unconventional collaborations and media. On the last day, Rotterdam-based artist Joep van Lieshout will discuss, among other things, the possibilities for stable and sustainable income from the artistic practice.
