What’s the difference between a resumé and a CV (curriculum vitae)? What is relevant to include on a CV and how do you organize different types of experience in an efficient way that is easy to comprehend?
 
Putting together a CV can be an often tedious and challenging task, but it’s an extremely valuable and essential skill to have as an artist, curator or designer. Whether it is for school, applying for an exhibition at a gallery or artist run centre, applying for a grant or a residency, a CV is something that will come up again and again throughout every stage of your career.
 
Xpace will be hosting a CV intensive workshop this January. What better time to give your CV a well needed overhaul than right after the winter holidays, at the start of the new year?
 
Topics that will be covered:
How to format a CV
What to Include
What not to Include
One-on-one meetings
 
This workshop will be taught based on our experiences (Amber Landgraff, Director, and Brette Gabel and Adrienne Crossman, Programming Coordinators) as artists and curators as well as our respective positions at Xpace Cultural Centre.
 
We will also have one on one workshops available, so bring your CV at whatever stage it’s at for some feedback.
 
The workshop is free and open to anyone, but please RSVP to [email protected] to reserve your spot.
