Panel description: This workshop will provide a brief overview of the Canadian artistic industry- including an introduction to standard fees and structural lexicon. This event will really help newcomers understand the historical significance of some of the well-established artistic practices and help them navigate them. Ex: public vs commercial galleries, artists fee vs readers fee etc. This information session will also touch on resources available for practical artistic sustainability (specific to newcomers) such as grants, social media etc.
