Writing About Your Work @ VAI

  • Visual Artists Ireland Windmill View House, Oliver Bond St Dublin 8 Ireland (map)

Concisely conveying core elements of your practice is essential to promoting your work and ensuring its accessibility. Covering such topics as proposals, funding applications, and statements for press and marketing purposes, we will discuss the dos and don’ts in writing statements. Over the course of the day, participants will work in an interactive way with peer supported feedback, producing texts that succinctly deliver their concepts, approaches and methodologies.

While working toward developing a concise statement, this session will also explore writing as a dynamic and reflective tool. We will consider the more expansive, generative ways in which writing can serve an arts practice, operating within or alongside it. In discussing how participants might develop a long term relationship with writing that will serve their practice and its shifting demands as it develops over time, we will also cover various opportunities regarding the production of text in relation to an artwork or exhibition.
