“Go to as many openings as possible, network well with many other artists and volunteer your services s often as possible to things like the Biennale, artist run spaces and your Alumni organisation. It shows you are serious and humble” – Cash Brown.

“You do it by doing it. If you get the fear, conjure up your inner lemming and jump off the face of it.” – Ash Hempsall

“The academy of women is the greatest and most important institution that mankind can have, and it should be avoided as much as possible.” – Adam Cullen

“Yes well. The art life is the good life and a public life Stuck between pleasure and pragmatism I would advise a young artist to be prepared to make your own opportunities, curate your own shows – doesn’t mean you can’t be in it, run a short term gallery, write a review even if you don’t get it published, communicate often with other artists, say what you think, be radical, question everything, support your artist friends and they will support you – And work on simultaneous career of art and earning a living – not necessarily the same thing – but an important issue to keep in mind – don’t miss out on the benefits of a permanent type job that doesn’t have to define your identity but at least could provide for your expensive art making practice and your old age.” – Elvis Richardson.
