Future Framing programme with Salwa Foundation

This Works and Salwa Foundation present Future Framing, an intense course that is all about imagining and rerouting your future. You will embark on a journey to imagine a place for yourself in the cultural field, beyond the limitations of your current situation.

In a series of weekly playful exercises and peer exchange, we cover a wide range of practical skills that you need: storytelling, mapping, visualization, submitting funding applications, making a budget and building your online visibility. How to promote your work and find your way in the networks and platforms that are relevant to your practice? 

We work with a mix of participants from This Art Fair and the network of SALWA.

 FULL COURSE OR SEPARATE WORKSHOPS Ideally, people will participate in the entire course. Each meeting consists of a peer feedback part and a workshop, which can also be joined separately.
