Five women at different stages of their careers will be answering your questions about how they achieve great things in the arts, what tools have helped them, how they manage imposter syndrome, and the importance of collaboration and mentorship.
‘Women in the Arts’ is an ongoing dialogue addressing endemic issues of gender inequality and exclusionary practices in the arts landscape. The online jobs board (instigated through Facebook) was the inaugural response to a need for accessible communication surrounding women in professional practice. The Facebook group has connected women with opportunities in contract, gallery and government arts roles. Though the group began as a jobs board, it has demonstrated how women in the arts benefit from collaboration and solution-based discussion.
