Presented by arts consultant and arts media identity, Paula Silbert

We’ve learned some of the finest tricks of public speaking. It’s time (and also necessary) to try it out in front of an audience of supportive friends.
Join us again so you can practice your speech in a totally safe environment.

  • Before you arrive, practice in front of the mirror.

  • Bring your 5 points

  • Don’t forget your artwork.

  • Stand up and tell us three to five points about it and your practice.

  • Use the opportunity to speak as you would at your opening, open studio, award night…

  • Practice looking at different areas of the room and making eye contact

  • Try pointing at something or asking the audience to vote or put their hands up

For the comfort and confidence of all participants, this session is for participants of the 14th August workshop only.*

10am o’clock for a 10.30am sharp start. We finish at 12 noon.
