ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP:
Artist biographies and résumés are hard to write, but they're important tools for artists working in any discipline. In this workshop, led by Artist Trust Program Manager Katy Hannigan, you'll learn the difference between artist biographies and résumés, the basics of writing both, and how to create your own. By the end of the workshop, you'll have the start of a résumé and biography to use for grant, residency, or fellowship applications, on your website, and/or in your portfolio.

*Open for artists of all disciplines at all career stages.

TOPICS COVERED:
- The different uses of biographies and resumes
- What, and what not, to include in a biography

- Which résumé  categories and sections to include and why
- What gallerists, curators, programmers, and funders look for first in your bio, CV, and/or résumé
- How to frame your non-art expertise and skills as an asset to your art practice

TAKEAWAYS
- Strong artist biography to use for presenting your work
- Sample artist biographies, résumés, and CVs to use as references for revising your own
