Workshop 2: Pitching and Networking | DARWIN
Saturday 30 May, 10am – 12pm
Two key ways to interact with an Arts Market is to “pitch” your show and network with people. Workshop 2 is a practical session for participants to trial different methods of pitching (selling) their work and pick-up some extra networking tips.
Liz Rogers, Performing Arts Manager, Artback NT will be joined by industry experts who have a wealth of experience in the world of ‘schmoozing’ and buying/selling shows.
Workshop 2 will cover the following topics:
- What is your project
- How will your work stand out
- What to avoid doing
This workshop is suitable for all career levels. It is recommended for participants who have secured a pitching spot at APAM to attend or to be used as a professional development opportunity.
