Where to find the best artist opportunities, and resources
Finding opportunities as an artist can be challenging in today's fast-paced world. With an overwhelming amount of information and feedback available, it's important to seek tips from trusted sources. Here are some recommended organizations for artists to find open calls, grants, prizes, and other opportunities.
Being an artist can be hard in this overwhelming world that goes too fast. Artists are constantly exposed to a huge amount of information, and getting lost is becoming easier and easier.
You better find a gallery to represent you!
Have you looked for some art residencies?
Why don’t you apply to open calls?
Have you tried organising open studio events?
Everyday artists are bombarded with these questions and feedback. Many of them live in big cities where, most of the times, making a living from their art seems impossible and they need to rely on other jobs. Time for research is limited and we better find tips from the right sources.
Instagram turned into a powerful tool for artists to look at what’s out there. However, our exposure to an excessive amount of art initiatives can actually end up confusing us more rather than guiding us to the right path!
For this reason, we'd like to share our knowledge and suggest some trusted organisations where artists can regularly find opportunities such as open calls, grants, call for entries, prizes etc.
