Creative Careers Day: Art and Art Galleries

Part of Schools

Pull back the curtain on hidden careers in the visual arts in this dynamic day of discussions and workshops with some of the industry’s finest.

Have you ever wondered who writes the explanations next to the artworks? What's it like to work with an artist? Who designs the actual gallery space? And what happens when a work of art gets damaged?

You may not want to be an artist yourself, but you can still make a career out of your passion for art.

Discover the numerous and varied roles that make up the vast world of art galleries and museums behind and beyond the artists, through talks and panel discussions, bite-sized workshops, speed mentoring opportunities and a fair of professionals.

Ask all your questions and discover routes into jobs you never even knew existed with the people who make the art industry run smoothly.
