Overview

How to write (and talk) about your work

This workshop will explore how to use a range of different words for different audiences, on how to write and speak about your creative practice.

Whether it’s at an interview, a sales pitch, a party or a tutorial, having the ability to be able to talk about your work is truly empowering and opens up your creative practice. This active session is designed to help every participant to learn and leave with a set of frameworks on how to talk about our creative work for different audiences. We’ll unpick the art-speak and think about how best we can use language to articulate whatever it is that we make, with all creative disciplines welcome.

This session will be lead by Rosemary Cronin: Employed as a Young Curator at Tate Modern as part of the Raw Canvas programme (which later developed to become Tate Collective), Rosemary has continued as an artist, curator and project manager, with a particular interest in socially engaged practice. Project managing and coordinating participatory projects for the National Portrait GalleryArt on the Underground and Museum of Brands. Rosemary has a passion to make art accessible for all, with particular experience working with young people and vulnerable audiences. A fine art graduate from Chelsea College of Art and Design, as an artist Rosemary has facilitated projects for Tate, the V & A, The Photographers' Gallery, South London Gallery and Watts' Gallery.
