Applying for an Exhibition at an Artist-Run Centre

A Workshop with Hannah Godfrey
Wednesday, May 12, 2021  |  6 – 8pm (CST)

A free workshop, in advance of Neutral Ground’s upcoming call for proposals deadline.
***Space is limited. Advance registration is required.***
Applying for an Exhibition at an Artist-Run Centre:
This will be a guide to making your exhibition proposal user-friendly. What do I write in a cover letter? How detailed should my descriptions be? What does the jury need to know about me and my practice? I am not offering a definitive how-to, but I can describe what has been appreciated by the jurors I worked with over the years and some of the things that successful applications have in common. Expect slides and asides.
