The Business of Art Development

Last Friday I mentioned Twitter’s #FollowFriday hashtag and how I planned to link #FF to my blog.

(Here’s the post if you missed it https://garnerwildlifeart.wordpress.com/2011/04/22/follow-me/.)

Can’t believe it’s Friday again already, but here’s my second #FFblog.

Making a living from art (whatever your discipline) is never an easy task, but thankfully there’s a lot of help out there from various sources. We seem to be particularly fortunate in this respect in the South West. So my online hero this week is ArtsMatrix http://artsmatrix.plymouthart.ac.uk/, Twitter name @artsmatrix.

ArtsMatrix is a South West Skills development agency for the Creative Industries. Their aim is to create a vibrant community of creative practitioners who can access support and opportunities in order to gain real business benefits. They provide support and opportunities via courses, events, a blog, mentoring, critiques and networking. There are four different membership tiers, ranging from free to corporate, according to your needs.

I’ve certainly benefitted from ArtsMatrix training in the past and I urge anyone looking to improve their artistic and business skills to check out ArtsMatrix.
