Are you a practicing artist?
Do you feel you could take your work further both conceptually and geographically?
Do you feel overwhelmed by the radical changes in the global and local art industry?

If your answer is YES you will benefit from the weekend workshop KZN-based Carol Brown will be presenting titled New Ideas for a New Decade. This is a hands-on workshop taking place in Cape Town for artists where there will be discussions on contemporary art-making and the changes which are currently disrupting the traditional art terrain.

Some topics to be discussed include:
-The current themes in art-making
-How the issues of environmental challenges affect art

-How to sell your work in the current art market 

Patrons will leave with their own personalized right brain business plan.
