About the event:
Award-winning artist and Ph.D. Emilia Telese will lead her trademark workshop Dodge the Shredder, teaching artists how to fundraise effectively and create a financial strategy for their practice.
Emilia Telese created Dodge The Shredder while managing the Artists’ Resource at Fabrica, the largest resource for artists’ professional development in the South East of England. Working for over six years creating the library, Emilia noticed that the most frequently asked question was how to fundraise for one´s work. Many artists were frustrated at not having a strategy for this, and so the format of Dodge the Shredded was created, using a system based on Emilia's research and personal practice.

Dr Emilia Telese (Italy, 1973) is an award-winning artist and art theorist based in Iceland. She graduated in Painting from the Fine Arts Academy in Florence in 1996 with a particular interest in XIV Century techniques, the 1960s Italian avant-garde movement, and contemporary performance. She subsequently furthered her studies at the University of Brighton (Printmaking), University of Sussex (Arts Management), University of Warwick (Cultural Policy) University of Loughborough (PhD in Social Science), and MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology). She trained in printmaking under Vairo Mongatti (Florence 1934-), one of the foremost acquafore printmakers in Italy.

She has exhibited worldwide since 1994, including the Louvre (Paris 2012), the New Forest Pavilion at the 51st Venice Biennale (Venice, 2005), Ars Electronica (Linz, Austria, 2002 - 2003), ZKM (Karlsruhe, Germany 2007), Chashama (New York City, USA 2008), Centro Cultural Telemar (Rio De Janeiro, Brazil 2010), Manege (St Petersburg, Russia 2000), Leeds City Gallery, ArtSway(New Forest, UK), the Freud Museum (London UK) Iand Grafíksalur (Reykjavík 2022, 2023).

She has presented her work at major events at Tate Britain, the Royal Festival Hall, the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) Oxford, Manchester Contemporary, Merchant City Festival, Glasgow, the Brighton Festival, and more.

Her practice crosses traditional media with time-based practice, including immersive, sensorial, interactive, and body-responsive technology, lens-based practice, performance, installation, and public art, as well as classic media such as painting, printmaking, and drawing.

Her artistic practice spans several art forms, including performance, installation, printmaking, and public art. She joins heritage techniques with contemporary media to explore different themes, such as conscious social engagement, the border between the universal and the personal, the body as a means of expression, and the questioning of stereotypes.
