The Value of Placement to Artist Development
A number of other projects funded by the ArtWorks programme have highlighted the importance of work placement activity in the development of artists. Artists themselves, when considering their preferred training methods, highly value work placement along with mentoring and shadowing opportunities. Many artists regard placements as a catalyst for the development of their skillset and experiences to equip them to work effectively in participatory settings. Many artists consider their work in participatory settings as a core part of a portfolio career and value the contribution it makes to their development and earning capacity.
