Drawing upon the perspective of arts decision-makers who run residencies, jury exhibitions, and review project proposals, this free panel discussion will cover:
-Where to find open calls for art exhibitions, residencies, and more
-How to determine if an opportunity is right for you
-Tips for compiling and presenting your work samples
-What reviewers like to see in the application statement/narrative
