After two enormously successful retreats in Tel Aviv, Asylum Arts held the third Artist Career Development Program. Again in partnership with Artport and Artis, ACDP 3 brought together another group of 25 Israeli visual artists.
ACDP is an invitation-only program that aims to empower artists with professional skills necessary for building professional capacity and awareness of the different aspects of the business of being an artist. ACDP focused on helping the artists develop a concrete vision of what they wanted the future of their career to look like, and devising a practical plan to achieve their goals. Artists were coached on developing a public presentation in English about their work, which were delivered to an audience of their peers, as well as many other stakeholders and special invited guests. ACDP also focused on financial issues, including financial management, budgeting, and individual fundraising as well as how to widen the artists’ spheres of influence.
