North Sydney Council's Professional Development for Artists series is aimed at artists working in all art forms and of all experience levels. With several networking opportunities, there will be something for everyone. The topic areas give a broad overview of the Australian arts ecology, tools and ideas about presenting your work and yourself. Professional artists will share their experiences and practice.
