Managing Cultural Projects Workshop with curator and cultural consultant Eamonn Maxwell


Kilkenny County Council Arts Office with our ArtLinks partners, Carlow, Waterford and Wexford are delivering a workshop in Managing Cultural Projects. This one day workshop is for individuals who deliver cultural projects as curators, project managers or producers. Whilst the workshop will be focused on visual art projects the points discussed during the day can be applied in other disciplines/events.

The workshop will explore planning, communication, meeting deadlines, securing funding + venues, contingency planning and the importance of leaving a good impression. Attendees will spend some time in a local cultural venue on the day looking at a successful cultural project and understanding the complexity involved.

This workshop will be of most benefit to individuals already involved in curating, project management or who are considering moving into one of those fields.
