In 2017, BEMAC is delivering Get Prep’d – four FREE Professional Development Workshops aimed at providing local artists with opportunities to upskill in various areas of the creative arts industry. These workshops are part of BEMAC’s ongoing efforts to support and nurture multicultural artists residing in Queensland.
BEMAC understands it can be a struggle for artists and creatives to keep up with the ever-changing trends in legislation, technology, marketing tools and tactics that is required today as an independent artist. GET PREP’D has been designed to inform, upskill and assist artists in some of these important areas of arts business and provide them with the necessary tools and techniques to be efficient, up-to-date and relieve the stress of this sometimes daunting part of the industry.
