Rosalind Davis delivers Exceptional Nuts and Bolts Professional Practice Talks on a number of subjects.
'Invigorating and Truly Inspirational' Backlit Gallery. Nottingham.
'Enthralling and so professionally and inspiringly done' Peter Phillips, Chair of West Midlands Branch, Arts Council England,
"Inspiring, practical and entertaining."
“Invaluable…. A lifeline!”
Practical, discursive, insightful and instructive talks to help new graduates and emerging artists begin to understand the practical and philosophical aspects of an art career and learn how they can navigate the difficult transition between education and making a career as an artist and breaking into the creative industries.
As a new graduate or established you will be in a constant state of development personally and professionally as you negotiate all the aspects of building a career in the art world. Out of necessity artists must become their own business, finance, sales and marketing manager, researcher, curator and administrator; ultimately, the project manager of your career as an artist.

Art School Futures Panel Discussion
Thursday 18 January, 3pm

How is art education changing in the 21st century? What will art students of the future be learning? What effect will the rise of tuition fees have on the art school of tomorrow? How will nascent alternative programmes develop and what effect might they have on the mainstream system?
Our three speakers, Turps Banana Studio Programme Leader, Phil Allen, curator and writer, Rosalind Davis and Vice Chancellor of Norwich University of the Arts, John Last, address what they see the art school of the future to look like from their individual professional perspectives.
