Welcome to the RBC Emerging Artists Series in partnership with Masterpiece and Sotheby’s Institute of Art. A unique resource for emerging artists, topics in this series address many of the practical issues faced in the development of a professional artistic career - knowledge that is essential to the daily management of the profession, yet often isn't spoken about.
Supporting the arts is a long-standing priority at RBC. We recognise the important role they play in building vibrant communities and strong economies. We also acknowledge the struggle many artists go through to gain the recognition they need to become successful in their practice. We hope you’ll use this resource to inform and support your career as an artist.
Through participation in this series, emerging artists will learn how to navigate the art world and support themselves as creative practitioners.
