This workshop, following up on the Career Documentation overview workshop, Antonia Perez will provide visual artists with practical recommendations to support their individual situations and needs in developing their own archiving systems. Participants will be provided with a brief questionnaire in advance of the workshop to assess of their needs. Breakout groups will be used as peer support to address issues brought up in the questionnaire, and those will be shared with the entire group and workshop leader for discussion. Participants will be provided with additional worksheets to use as tools in their career documentation process. Active group participation is encouraged.
