Event Information

An artist’s resume or CV isn’t a static document – it’s a communications tool you can leverage for new professional relationships and opportunities. In this workshop, creative strategist Robin Held focuses on strategies to increase the visibility of your artistic accomplishments and achievements to professionals with whom you most want to connect. By the end of the workshop, you’ll understand how to best highlight your professional experience on paper and tailor your resume or CV for each opportunity you pursue.
