Artists frequently tell us the thing they need most is access to decision-makers, to connect to opportunities outside their usual networks and get past some of the myths and mysteries of how artists receive support.
TransCultural Exchange’s 2016 International Conference on Opportunities in the Arts does just that. One of the few conferences specifically for artists and their career development, the event gives artists the chance to connect with international curators, presenters, residency directors, funders, and others and open the door to career opportunities around the world.
More than one-third of past attendees received invitations to residencies and exhibitions and/or successful grant applications as a direct result of their attending the conference. And with artists increasingly interested in engaging communities outside the U.S., this is a critical opportunity to connect to global decision-makers.
The next TCE conference is February 25-27, 2016, in Boston. More info can be found at http://www.transculturalexchange.org/2016-conference/overview.htm
