Every year, as part of the BA Fine Art, BA Creative Art Practice and MArt courses, Sheffield Hallam University invites guest speakers from across the art world to share their knowledge and experiences as practicing professionals. It is hoped that by the end of the week, students will have a better understanding of what steps to take in order to develop their individual practices and achieve their career goals.
