CONCURRENT SESSION: Stories We Tell: Self-Advocacy in Arts & Culture

  • THEMUSEUM 10 King Street West Kitchener, ON, N2G 1A3 Canada (map)

Building a successful career in the arts & culture sector often means authentically advocating for yourself. Whether you’re just starting out in the field, or you’re able to draw on a wealth of experience, it’s a consistent challenge to reflect upon, synthesize and articulate precisely what your unique strengths are and how they add value in different contexts. This session will explore a variety of approaches to developing the key skills required to convey what you offer: from settings such as an interview experience, to dealing with team dynamics or building a new strategic relationship with collaborators.

Session Speaker: Zev Farber, Director, Centre for Emerging Artists & Designers, OCAD University
