Led by Paula Varjack, this workshop will use performance, writing and interview, to explore the ways in which artists support themselves through their artistic work, and through other means. Participants will be encouraged to share problems and solutions related to presentation, funding, financial precariousness, and transparency. Open to artists of all disciplines and levels of experience.
Paula Varjack is a writer, filmmaker and theatre maker. Her work explores identity, the unsaid, and making the invisible visible. She makes work across disciplines; performance, theatre, documentary and spoken word. Her most recent show “ Show Me The Money” – explores the reality of making a living as an artist in the U.K., based on interviews with artists across the country.

Show Me The Money: Workshop is produced by MAIA, as part of their programme exploring how artists live, work and contribute in society. We welcome participants to pay what they feel for this workshop.
