ARTIST FOR HIRE : ALL SKILLS REQUIRED, is a performance-based exploration that will take place throughout the week of February 19 – 23 at Arts Council – Windsor & Region’s Artspeak Gallery. Windsor-based artists have been invited to ‘perform’ a skill that they have used or developed to generate income through employment or work that is not related to their art practice, or a ‘non-traditional’ arts skill they have learned for their artistic practice.
