Toolkit: Application Writing with Zoë Lippett
Thursday, 5 April 2018
6.30 – 8pm
Zoë Lippett, Exhibitions and Artists’ Projects Curator at The New Art Gallery Walsall, gaave a toolkit about application writing.
Drawing on her experience of assessing applications, selecting for residencies and creating opportunities for artists, Zoë guided us through a range of different ways to present work and practice in different contexts, sharing top tips on producing great written applications, standout artists statements and more. This informal session was a great opportunity to ask all those burning questions and share our experiences.
