In the past I have gained first-hand experience in the art workplace and community. In this time I have organised solo and group art exhibitions and taken part in art shows and fairs with my own work. Through these previous outside art opportunities, I have strengthened my team leader and designing skills, through researching and contacting artists and galleries directly, designing exhibition posters, web sites, and press releases. I wish to continue this development by working with others in this business idea. In the business I intend to set up, I would like to expand on my experiences and develop a company to explore what I have learnt over the years. The business outline will be to create pop-up exhibitions across the country from upcoming and establishing artists. In the process creating exposure for these artists and making an income by selling their work. I would find it very rewarding putting my artistic flares, ideas and skills into this future design company, for myself and other artists to develop. I will use this opportunity to explore and develop my understanding of starting up a career in event management in an art environment.
