SA Talks: The Gatekeepers are Dead
1859 Kingston Road
Gatekeepers are Dead: Your Creative Business in the Digital Age is an illustrated presentation for artists who
are looking to expand their understanding of their ability to promote
themselves and sell their art in our internet age.
Lezley Davidson will lead a presentation about how the barriers that used to exist for artists to make a living off their work have been rendered obsolete by the internet. Using a combination of photographs, illustrations, and case studies, Lezley will discuss the five most important questions that artists today need to consider before they jump into an art business. The talk will also outline the top three actions required for art business success.
By the end of the talk, participants will be able to identify whether they are ready and willing to throw their art into the ring of commerce. A discussion will follow the presentation.
