Collective Creativity and artist Anni Movsisyan will facilitate discussion Performing Professionality – The politics of getting paid (AKA BBHMM) at Open School East on the afternoon of April 29.
The focus of the discussion will be around the the various methods QTIPOC (queer, trans, intersex and people of colour) artists manoeuvre their work in and out of Institutions and DIY spaces in order to negotiate surviving as artists, as well as critiquing the meanings of success and marginality.
Held at Open School East, one of London’s recently established non-paying open art school-cum-communities (another is School of the Damned), also highlighted will be the relationships between work and success, professionalism and payment and how to deal with asking for renumeration for QTIPOC artistic capital and labours.
Two articles will be at the core of the afternoon’s subjects: ‘How To Be An Unprofessional Artist‘, and ‘This Step on the Path: An Artist Asks‘, which are worth a read whether you make it to the discussion or not.
