In 2020 we surveyed creative practitioners across Cambridgeshire, to help us understand what development opportunities are needed most. We had over 130 responses, with many practitioners looking for advice and peer support.
Now, as part of The Library Presents’ and Babylon Arts' commitment to artist development, we are excited to offer a series of talks and workshops, all designed to support you. Runing through January and February 2022, the sessions will cover advice on submitting an expression of interest to our artist call out, to giving you all the tools you need to be a successful creative freelancer.
