A connected art collective can bring artists together to stay focused and passionate for the challenging path they’re taking through the creative industries. Learn how to create a dynamic collective which shifts your fellow creatives from being your competition to your colleagues, best friends and closest allies. You will:

– Explore how you can shift your mindset to embrace collaboration and how it can support your career and creative process
– Examine a range of programs and projects that have resulted in a dynamic art collective
– Look at professional development pathways you can employ to immediately to progress your career

Examples will be provided from the Fraser Coast Art Collective, which has experienced rapid industry growth and established a solid platform for artists in the region. Learn how they tapped into the talent, skills and opportunities within their local creative community and how you can do the same.
