Frequently asked questions by graduates and students

Where can I find information about placing my work in galleries?

This will depend on your work, and you’ll need to research the particular galleries you’d like to place your work in, but there’s excellent general advice on the Crafts Council Website and you can also download their factsheet. Artquest also offer useful information and a range of articles in their ‘How to exhibit’ section.

Where can I find resources to support me in finding career opportunities in the arts?

Artquest is an excellent source of information, with regularly posted opportunities. New Art West Midlands is another great source for local opportunities, and Arts Professional offers a searchable jobs function and a weekly mailout full of job opportunities.

Where can I find information about local and national funding opportunities?

The Arts Council funding finder is a great place to start.

Herefordshire Council Funding Update offers a comprehensive list of local and national themed opportunities. Some of these are open to small businesses and charities rather than individual artists, so you will need to read through each listing.

If you come across a useful funding opportunity, please share it on our ‘opportunities’ page here in Launchgrad!
