Talk by founders of arts support organisation Empty Shop
The founders of non profit arts organisation Empty Shop CIC will be speaking about how they set up and made their mark in the creative industry in The Northern School of Art‘s next #CreativeCareers: Professional Studies online session on Wednesday 12 May at 2pm.
Carlo Viglianisi and Nick Malyan set up Empty Shop CIC in Durham City in 2008 to provide much needed accessible platforms and they work with artists of all levels and backgrounds to produce, exhibit and promote their work.
Ten years on, Empty Shop still provides opportunities and resources in Durham, as well as working in a variety of areas which utilise Carlo and Nick’s expanded and diverse range of expertise.

About The Northern School of Art’s Creative Careers series:
The schedule of talks covers a range of disciplines and they are delivered by industry speakers, creative lecturers and graduates from across the whole creative sector.
These sessions can serve as a useful resource for schools and colleges (or anyone with an interest in creative development and progression). Usually lasting around 45 minutes, they take place on a Wednesday afternoon.
Participants can log in remotely via a Microsoft Teams link, which will be sent to anyone that books a place through Eventbrite.
Our previous speakers have helped to inspire the next generation of creatives, sharing their own creative journey, insights into their practice, demonstrations of their work as well as providing general advice to anyone looking to follow a similar path.
