Area of Expertise
Annette is flexible on what visual artists might request for One-to-One Clinics. Broad examples include:
Feedback on draft proposals or applications for a bursary, residency, funding or other opportunity; advice on an aspect of your visual arts practice; public art commissions; exhibition ideas and development; public engagement; a draft Artists Statement, CV, Biog etc.
Documentation of your arts practice can be forwarded in advance through some focused material that communicates what you do. Ideally this material for review should be saved in PDF format to be no longer than 10-15 pages. The PDF could include text or written material and where relevant: 10 jpegs images or visuals; 3-4 video or audio clips (max viewing time of 20mins); a draft Artists Statement, CV, Biog etc; a draft proposal, application or other material; selected web pages are fine (rather than a full website); etc.
