In next week’s VAI Lifelong Learning offer, we look at the challenges of how to plan your Artist career path…
Focusing on Offaly, this webinar will look at opportunities for artists and creatives in the midlands, the advantages of being geographically central, and the necessity of collaborative projects in rural locations.
The webinar takes place at 11am on Thursday 21 April
We all know the challenges and sometimes it is hard to know what a career path might look like. This is particularly true for artists who may feel that they are not part of a “major city” scene. We have all said at some time… it is easy for artists in such and such a big city, they are part of that clique… but, in fact, all face the same issues and there are many opportunities for us to explore and develop no matter where we live and work. Although this webinar will focus on Offaly (and there are 8 free clinic slots for County Offaly based artists), it is of value to all as it will look at what opportunities exist and the necessity of collaboration and networking when based in rural areas. The webinar and clinics will be delivered by Therry Rudin.
Therry was born in Switzerland and has lived in Germany, USA and Brazil. She attended the ‘Basler Kunst Gewerbe Schule’ and the ‘Kunst Akademie’ in Munich, Germany. She first came to Ireland in 1985 and lived in Limerick for five years, where she founded the art school ‘Studio 55’ and published the arts magazine ‘Anima’. She now lives in Ballybritt, Co Offaly, and Barcelona. She lectures in the Fine Art Department of Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design and Technology. She has exhibited widely in Ireland, Switzerland, Brazil and USA in selected solo and group shows. She exhibits regularly in collaboration with the artist Patricia Hurl.
