INXO Arts and Culture X Theatrex Asia
“I know what I am doing artistically, but I don’t know how to explain it.” – this is an all too familiar line from artists. You might have a good artistic practice, but you have got trouble writing and saying it out.
A workshop that assists artists in thinking, writing and articulating their own artistic practice will also bridge the communication gap between them and prospective funders, presenters and most importantly their audience members. It will assist artists to think artistically and strategically on how their own artistic practice could travel to more places in the world. The workshop will also offer practical examples on how artists write and how funders and curators view and select artists for their own festivals and residencies. As part of Theatrex Asia’s community support initiative for artists and arts managers in Malaysia, this reasonably priced workshop is specifically crafted for community needs.
“我非常清楚自己的艺术走向与策略，但是我不知道如何讲给别人听。” —— 在艺术界，这是一句令人熟悉的话。你有一个非常好的艺术创作，但是难以言传。
