Bridge briefings

Artsmark briefings are designed to give you an overview of the Artsmark process and the benefits and value of achieving Artsmark or Artsmark Gold.

You will leave the briefing with a clear understanding of what to do next and what’s involved in making an application. You will discover more about local opportunities, as well as being able to ask plenty of questions. The session can be attended by both network and non-network members; however, they are designed to appeal to those still deciding whether to apply or whether to join the network.

We are now taking bookings for the following Artsmark briefings. Follow the links for more information and to make a booking. You are welcome to attend a briefing in any region.
