Welcome to Talking Shop, TPWM’s new blog that invites debate and dialogue on matters related to being a professional artist, updates on TPWM progress, events and programme, and an opportunity to network with artists across the West Midlands region and further afield.
My name is Elena Cassidy-Smith, and I am a Wolverhampton based artist,Chair of Wolverhampton Contemporary Art Forum and member of TPWM Steering Group and I will be Talking Shop's editor.
Over the coming months we will be talking to artists about their experiences, voicing their ideas and inviting them to bring new discussions to Talking Shop. We want to hear your concerns, questions and suggestions on a variety of topics and we look forward to facilitating a lively debate from artists across the region.
