ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP:
An artist's resume or CV isn't a static document it's a communications tool you can leverage for new professional relationships and opportunities. In this workshop, creative strategist Robin Held focuses on strategies to increase the visibility of your artistic accomplishments and achievements to professionals with whom you most want to connect. By the end of the workshop, you'll understand how to best highlight your professional experience on paper and tailor your resume or CV for each opportunity you pursue.
*This workshop is open to artists of all disciplines and is ideal for artists at any career stage who already have resumes and/or CVs; artists who have taken Artist Trust's "Writing Your Artist Resume" workshops or webinars; or artists who have taken Artist Trust's "Cultivating Professional Relationships" workshop with Robin Held.
