EASEL CAREER FAIR - 8th June 2018

Easel, in partnership with Art History in Schools, hosted our first free arts career fair, at the Institute of Contemporary Art on the 8/9th June 2018.

The two day event was an opportunity for school students, undergraduates and postgraduates to come and talk to educators and industry professionals about their next step. Easel was able to advise on our grant scheme and mentorship programme and we invited universities, schools and arts institutions and charities to attend, have a stand and contribute to the events programme.

We hosted a series of talks and workshops helping students make the next step to employment. They were able to speak to institutions and discover what kind of career they would like to pursue. We hosted workshops to with public speaking and had speakers from masters programmes and from auction houses, museums and galleries to help candidates make an informed decision.

Speakers and exhibitors included Christie’s, Sotheby’s, Christie's Education, Goldsmiths, The Courtauld Institute of Art, Crown Fine Art, Constantine, Two Temple Place, Lyon and Turnbull, Art History Abroad, Association for Art Historians, Museums Association, Art Fund, Bonhams, A New Direction, Bold Tendancies, The Auction Collective and Martin Speed.
