PAST EVENT CPD Workshop: Diversifying income; The value of Art and Artists 

Hosted by: Laura H Drane 

Date & Time

Wednesday 21st April 2021, 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm

These sessions take place on Zoom.


Visual Arts Group Wales (VAGW) is holding one Continuing Professional Development (CPD) workshop that aims to help artists and individuals who work in the arts diversify their income. This event is a direct response to VAGW’s latest survey ‘COVID-19 and visual arts in Wales’ focusing on one of the three major priorities identified. This workshop will allow individuals to feel more confident when thinking about diversifying income and how an artist’s time is valued. 

In attending this event you will be able to :

  • Understand basic budgeting; how to build one, key terms, and what to include in a budget.
  • Calculate expenditure figures – fair pay, etc
  • Understand the different funding options available to those in the arts sector – types and sources. 
  • Confidently negotiate payment terms with institutions, venues, and individuals. 

What do you need to earn? How much is your time worth?

This workshop is for those who are new to budgeting or those who want to brush up on their knowledge of what makes a great budget. Opportunity will be given for you to ask questions on all the areas covered during the workshop. 

This is a 4 hour workshop that will include group discussions, group tasks, individual activities, and comfort breaks.
