Lulu Keating is the Jenni House artist in residence for May. This workshop is part of the Jenni House Artist Residency Program.

Are you interested in making films (or art)?  Are you a filmmaker (or artist) who wants to develop your work as a sustainable career?

Lulu Keating presents a practical workshop that is useful for new and experienced film/video makers/artists.  The purpose of the workshop is to grow participants from not knowing how to achieve the next level of professionalism, to having the information and resources to be able to strategize making a living from your artistic practice. 

The workshop starts with recognizing obstacles and dismantling them.  Then Lulu discusses how to set goals, how to grow your portfolio, your network and your experience.  The workshop explores opportunities for advancement: grants, residencies, and other resources to build a career, to network, and to achieve status as a self-employed artist.  There will be practical guidance on successful application writing.

Lulu Keating is an award-winning writer, producer and filmmaker. Her films are predominantly independent dramas, animated films and documentaries, and she has also produced for the NFB, CBC and History Television.  Her films have screened at festivals from Chicago to Copenhagen and her work has been honoured with numerous awards around the world.
