Artists’ Moving Image Development Workshop led by Benjamin Cook (LUX)

November 22-23

Benjamin Cook, Director of LUX, leads a two-day workshop for artists seeking to develop new moving image projects. Working together the group will explore conceptualisation and articulation of ideas, written and verbal presentation skills, placing projects and building partnerships, fundraising, exhibition and distribution strategies. The emphasis will be on skills that can be applied within both art and film contexts, including seeking funding, residency and production award applications as well as pitching at development markets, film festivals and other competitive contexts. Working within an informal and mutually supportive small group environment, participants will bring a short project proposal to be workshopped over the two days. This workshop will be the first of four with the following being led by Jacqui Davies, Andrea Luka Zimmerman ja Gareth Evans. The size of the group will be 8 people. 200-word project proposal is necessary for the application. This workshop will take place in English.
