SHINE YOUR WORK

When: 01.10.21 – 21.10.21

21 days online workshop that provides you with the strategic communication tools to sell your work with integrity – and raises your awareness of the psychology of visibility.

“I think the workshop helped me to listen better to myself and see my work more clear. It made me proud of what I do.”
Swedish artist

“The workshop made me feel that I am not alone, but most amazing, I find out that some of the things I thought were typical of the precariousness of living in Spain and working in culture were also shared in the rest of the countries. It helped me know more about my real potential and be in peace with it.”
Spanish producer

“The workshop gave me attention on my practice and a commitment to think about it – insisting on the value of this commitment.”
Danish artist

“This course was comprehensive and helped me focus more on audience & better communication of artistic deas.”
Italian producer


About the workshop

“Do you sometimes feel invisible? Or feel like hiding from other people’s opinions? You just want to do your work. You LIKE your work – but all the “selling”-stuff is not really you.”
With 20 years of experience in selling, promoting, developing and presenting art Karen Toftegaard has specialized in giving creatives the tools to sell and promote their work with integrity. To embrace the vulnerability in putting your work in the arena. The tools to shine your work.
