The Kaizen is a workshop designed to help artists, photographers, and creative practitioners develop the ways in which they present their work to the public.
Taking place over two days in West London, there will be a series of interactive lectires detailing appropriate formats for key documents such as Artists’ CV’s and statements, followed by a series of artists presentations to benefit participants when they are choosing their work for exhibitions, studio visits, or online presentations, and to develop the way they communicate their work to others.
The Kaizen is produced by Matt Roberts Arts, a London based professional development organization with over 10 years of experience of artist’s mentoring, lecturing, and consultancy for not-for-profit and commercial galleries and organizations.
