Opportunities to Connect 2018

Fife Contemporary presents a conference for new makers and craft & design graduates to introduce Scottish arts organisations that offer support, funding and opportunities.

This is a rescheduled version of our postponed development day. We have been in consultation with various groups within the sector to bring you a new, improved format. We want you as an individual to leave the event, understanding more about your work and knowing where to go for support and information on how to develop your practice as a maker.

Included in the day will be instructional and discursive sessions as well as inspirational presentations with ample opportunity to ask questions. This will be your chance to really find out what organisations are looking for when selecting applications.

Further Information on the day
