Curious about a career in the arts after school or wanting to immerse yourself in the world of contemporary art? The Visual Field is a professional development program for young and emerging creatives (15-18yrs), delivered by the Institute of Modern Art and Flying Arts Alliance.

Meet artists and arts industry professionals to explore career pathways and connect with likeminded teens. Gain real-world experience in engaging audiences on contemporary art by producing a piece of written or digital content. Participate in a range of activities during this three-day immersive, including exhibition tours, hands-on workshops, and panel discussions.

Several participants will have the opportunity to receive mentoring from an arts industry professional to hone their arts review for publication by online arts magazine Lemonade.

In 2023 The Visual Field will be held across two Queensland venues – Rockhampton Museum of Art, Rockhampton and the Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane.
