Following last year’s successful event, Art Work – An Insight into the Art World, featuring Hauser & Wirth artist Mark Wallinger, the gallery is pleased to announce the second edition of our Art Work series.
Studying at university may not necessarily mean that you will have a career in the subject that you study and many people worry about the uncertainty of an art, design or media degree. However, education opens doors to a multitude of careers; the media and communication world is made up of many specialists. Some roles you may never have heard of.
Come along and meet Don McCullin, the celebrated British photojournalist and explore his retrospective exhibition, ‘Conflict – People – Landscape’.
The session will raise questions such as:
• What does a photojournalist do?
• What kinds of careers exist for those who study photography and art?
• Is university study necessary to pursue a career in photography and media?
• How will I make a living as a photographer?
• What are the most important things to learn from education?
This event is aimed at 6th Form and FE students only and will provide further information about studying beyond school, as well as career opportunities in subjects raised by the exhibition at Hauser & Wirth Somerset. Students may attend with art teachers, tutors, parents or alone. School bookings are limited to 10 places per school.
This event is now fully booked
