At the Professional Artist level, we engage our artists, artistes and artisans with the community, as well as offer career opportunities and lifelong learning. Through regular participation in events, commissioned works and collaborative projects, our artists are able to build a sustainable income for themselves. In further providing vocational training and knowledge-sharing sessions, our artists can continuously upgrade themselves, maintain independence and build their own network of support.
