Among the topics surveyed will be: starting your business; finding representation; connecting to exhibition and performance opportunities; marketing your work; expanding your networks through residency programmes; updates on local IP and copyright laws; and more.

The line-up of international speakers include: Lisa Hoffmann, Executive Director of the Alliance of Artists Communities (USA), Amanda Coulson, Founder and Artistic Director of Volta Art Fair (Basel and New York), O’Neil Lawrence, Senior Curator at the National Gallery of Jamaica (Jamaica), the Cayman Islands Intellectual Property Office, Deborah Anzinger, Director of NLS residency project (Jamaica), Natalie Urquhart, NGCI Director (Cayman), and Kaitlyn Elphinstone NGCI Public Engagement Manager, (Cayman).

Thanks to the generous support from Susan A. Olde, OBE we are able to keep attendance costs to a minimum:

Regular attendance CI$35.00 / Practicing artist CI$25.00 / Students over 15yrs: FREE. Lunch and refreshments will be provided throughout.
