Workshops and Talks

  • Sophie Giblin

I’m honoured to have spoken at universities, galleries and businesses all over London, SE England and Wellington, New Zealand. I tell Kollektiv Gallery’s start up story, I suggest ways to support artists by sharing my business model, so other’s can use it too.

 I’ve also had the pleasure of teaching my workshop Fast Art alongside most of these talks. Fast Art is a speedily paced, creative entrepreneurship workshop where teams start, finish and sell a concept in three hours or less. I designed Fast Art to lovingly nudge people to trust their gut, let go of expectations and pay homage to the ingenious child inside themselves. Fast Art smashes up agile-innovation techniques and allows participants to act on raw instinctive decision making and physical creation. https://www.kollektivgallery.com/fast-art/ Fast Art is a speedily paced, creative entrepreneurship workshop where teams start, finish and sell a concept in three hours or less.
