Art Dealers’ Bootcamp Competition 2018

Tuesday, June 12th, 2018

Attention all emerging and mid-career Art Dealers! The fifth edition of The Art Dealer’s Bootcamp, presented by AWAD Partner Be Smart About Art, is back with a refined revamp of the course. This is your opportunity to win a chance to further your career significantly by applying to the Art Dealers’ Bootcamp Competition 2018.

We have developed the 1-2-1 part of the program to give you more individual guidance from BSAA Founder and art world specialist, Susan J Mumford. There will be a series of webinars aimed at positively impacting the bottom line of your business and all attendees this year will also have the option to attend privately.

Have you wondered what terms to put in place with artists? A course perk being launched this time around is the provision of an Artist-Gallery Contract. which we’re commissioning from specialist art lawyer Anthony Misquitta. The general terms will apply regardless of your location, and the contract will be based on consignments of works. (There will be a recorded Q&A with Anthony so that you can have your questions addressed, based on your own needs.)

Moreover, you’ll guide through the rest of 2018 alongside peers, who, like you, are experiencing a swiftly shifting landscape. Are fairs still relevant? If so, which ones? This and much more will be discussed during LIVE sessions as well as in the online discussion threads that you’ll be able to access throughout the course and beyond, as a graduate of the Art Dealers’ Bootcamp.

Does this sound useful? Fill out this application form to be in with a shot at winning private mentoring sessions and discounts towards this year’s competition (which also serves as your application to attend the program).

This opportunity has been sponsored by:

 Haines Watts Accountants – Vorto –  Hallett Independent – Be Smart About Art
