Masterclass Work-Show-Grow

Go for Gold. How to pitch yourself and your work.

An intense weekend of professional practice working with the London-based school Work-Show-Grow.

Getting work ready to show the world can be challenging; how do you edit, how do you write the project text, how do you best pitch it to potential editors and curators?

Guided by Circulation(s) Festival Co-Director Audrey Hoareau and Work-Show-Grow founder and artist Natasha Caruana a small group of just 18 participants will work together over two days to create the best presentation for existing work. You will finish the weekend with a coherent portfolio, project text, a set of creative career goals, and a bunch of new friends!




The workshop will cover:

  • How to edit a strong sequence of images
  • How to write a clear and dynamic project text
  • How to best speak about your project
  • How to make a marketing plan to get your project out there


  • All teaching sessions across two days
  • Paper
  • Printing
  • Group lunch on the first day
  • Portfolio event with the Circulation(s) team

Price: €150 per person
