Easel: Careers in the Arts Industry

Engage is pleased to be taking part in Easel’s 2019 Careers in the Arts Industry fair.

The fair showcases the broad and diverse range of jobs and opportunities in the art industry. The event is a chance to speak to professionals, ask for advice, find inspiration and think of your next steps. 

Through a series of carefully curated panel discussions and an array of businesses, institutions, charities and start-ups on offer, Easel aims to represent the art world’s ecosystem.

Easel wants attendees to feel inspired to explore opportunities in the art industry and encouraged to speak to those that work in it.

Panel Discussions will explore the nuts and bolts of the art world, how to start an art business and what the future of the art industry looks like.

Alongside Engage, over 40 industry leaders will be representing auction houses, art publishing, charities, commercial galleries, digital technologies, finance, higher education, law, museums and much more.
