Welcome to our online Artist Directory!
The Artist Directory is for:
- Artists seeking employment in Victoria, Australia.
- Employees seeking artists to work in Victoria, Australia.
For some years, Arts Access has provided a successful referral system that has linked artists with potential employers. As a major employer of professional artists with extensive community based arts project experience, Arts Access receives many enquiries from artists and potential employers of artists. This online directory enables a more effective service.
The Artist Directory includes:
- Professional artists who are available for employment and have experience in working on arts projects with people who are disadvantaged including people with a disability.
- Emerging and professional artists with a disability.
For Employers – Disclaimer
Arts Access recommends that potential employers follow up standard recruitment procedures before employing the artists who are listed on the Artist Directory.
Inclusion on the Artist Directory does not mean that Arts Access recommends the Artist. It is a self referral system only, and no checks have been done against the entries.
For Artists – How to use the Directory
The Artist Directory allows you to upload your details. You can also display images of your art and work via your Flickr account. If you don’t have a Flickr account, you can set one up – it’s easy and free.
Flickr is an online photo management and sharing tool. You can add notes and tags to each photo, allowing you to find and sort images using Flickr tags.
What are Flickr tags? Quite simply, Flickr tags are a way to organize your images. That’s it, nothing fancy. For instance, if you have uploaded a photo of dancing cats, you will probably want to categorize that photo as “dancing cats”. That way other people looking for dancing cats can find your image.
