Money is by far the greatest concern for many artists, as the unpredictable nature of selling work forces people to budget and save for the month when sales are slower than others.” But what if a Fair art practice is applied to the whole art world? Is this possible? What are the artists´ rights while being part of an exhibition? What is a fair fee, and when do artists owe to receive one?” (from ‘Navigating the Art World’ by Delphian.


  • How can you manage your career?
  • How do you create a workflow of funded projects to generate a living?
  • How can you deal with institutions and collaborators?
  • How can you calculate your rate of pay?

PhD. doctorate, lecturer and artist Emilia Telese specifically tailored this workshop to provide the participants with the answers to those questions.


Through a mix of theoretical presentations, Interactive mind-mapping exercises; each participant will create a mind map of their art projects which will be analysed in the session.

Specifically developed fo artists that are going to graduate this year, and recently graduated artists, every participant will gain knowledge, tools, and skills to maximise their productivity and develop each project at its best.


“I learned a lot from Emilia’s workshop, she provided so many tools for us and brought the information in a very practical way. It gave me a lot of peace to be able to structure my projects and organise what needs to get done and when” (C.K. participant, 2022)

“Emilia shares so much insight into her knowledge and research about the artworlds and how to develop our own practice. What possibilities there are and that we can create our own artworlds and to become active and do not wait for others and so on. It was really encouraging and gave a compass to work with which I will definitely make use of from now on. It really lightened the fog and took away the blurry uncertain feeling I had beforehand as it made quite clear how the art world works and how you best navigate it” (H.D. participant, 2023)

“Emilia’s experience and knowledge of the art world are impressive. After the workshop, I feel well prepared to navigate the art world.” (M.P. participant, 2022)

She subsequently furthered her studies at the University of Brighton (Printmaking), University of Sussex (Arts Management), University of Warwick (Cultural Policy) and University of Loughborough (Social Sciences). Her work has been shown worldwide since 1994, exhibited at the Louvre (Paris 2012), the New Forest Pavilion at the 51st Venice Biennale (Venice, 2005), Ars Electronica (Linz, Austria, 2002 – 2003), ZKM (Karlsruhe, Germany 2007), Chashama (New York City, USA 2008), Centro Cultural Telemar (Rio De Janeiro, Brazil 2010), Manege (St Petersburg, Russia 2000), Leeds City Gallery, ArtSway(New Forest, UK) and the Freud Museum (London UK).

She holds an AHRC CDA full bursary PhD doctorate in Social Sciences from the University of Loughborough, UK. Her PhD thesis focused on the social value and the individualisation of artists in the UK between 1980 and 2010.

As an artist, her practice crosses traditional media with time-based practice, including immersive, sensorial, interactive and body-responsive technology, lens-based practice, performance, installation, and public art, as well as classic media such as painting, printmaking and drawing. Often site-specific, Emilia’s work deals with conscious engagement, political and social debate, non-verbal communication and the questioning and deconstruction of social behaviour.
