We are pleased to be partnering with Grenfell Gallery and the Cultural Human Resources Council to present The Art of Managing Your Career (TAMYC)! These free workshops (funded by the Canada Council for the Arts) are tailored for students heading into the job market and early-stage professionals who want to solidify their career in an artistic discipline including Crafts, Dance, Digital Media, Film & TV, Music, Theatre, Visual Arts, or Writing.
This is a hybrid event with the in-person component taking place at MUN’s Grenfell Campus at the Fine Art auditorium space or online through Microsoft Teams. Register early as there is limited seating for in-person participation.
TAMYC is a guide developed by artists and cultural workers, providing emerging self-employed artists and cultural workers with pertinent and practical information to better manage their careers.
Using TAMYC, CHRC’s workshops address:
- Knowing the Market
- Knowing Yourself
- Knowing your Project(s)
This is accomplished through the fundamental elements of a business plan that considers sustainable competitive advantage while identifying artistic and commercial/entrepreneurial goals.
The second part of the workshops is an opportunity to interact with Arts Service Organization (ASO) or Artist Association (AA) discipline representatives for a Q&A session and a better understanding of the advantages and services offered that ASOs and AAs can offer individual artists.
Dr. Grégoire Gagnon is a manager, pedagogue and musician fostering culture and promoting arts from the stage to the classroom to the boardroom. Aside from being a lifelong academic and a real-world problem solver, Grégoire is (amongst other things) currently the Executive Director of the Cultural Human Resources Council, the President of the Ottawa Guitar Society and in all of his roles, he strives to make others thrive.
Cultural Human Resource Council‘s mission is to strengthen the Canadian cultural workforce by providing leadership and innovative solutions to human resource issues and to better the HR environment within the cultural sector. In order to do so, CHRC brings together cultural workers and employers to address training, career development and other human resource issues for all artistic disciplines and industries in both official languages.
