Effective Communication for Galleries

Tuesday 17 Apr 2018, 10:30 AM - 5:00 PM

Communicating complex ideas in meaningful ways is critical to engaging audiences for the visual arts. In this short course you will learn how to write content for a wide range of purposes using Plain English  - curatorial statements, descriptive panels, catalogue essays, promotional materials, reports and more .

The session will include presentations from speakers such as Kate Ryan , the Truby and Florence Williams Curator of Children’s Programs with the National Gallery of Victoria, who will discuss creating content specifically for younger audiences and families; and a practical Plain English workshop facilitated by Andrew Pegler of Andrew Pegler Media.
