About #bsaaff: 

This is a monthly opportunity for BSAA Members and one-time Guests that enables you to:

  • Develop your peer network
  • Meet fellow professionals in the art world
  • Discover exhibition spaces around the cultural capital
  • Meet gallery curators and artists 
  • Expand your skills in networking for your art practice. 

Our Founder Susan Mumford provides 3 top networking tips each month. 

Not keen on 'networking'? Consider this question: Do you enjoy meeting people and talking about art? 

If your answer is 'Yes', you will thrive on art world networking, for the benefit of developing your creative and professional practice!

And, if you are still not keen... We will gladly help you develop the confidence and skills you need to go out into the world and meet people, which helps support your creative career.

Why Members only?

Be Smart About Art Members are committed to developing their art profession - as art dealers, artists, curators and others in the industry. 

An important aspect of succeeding with this aim is building an art world network that will help you. 

We embrace the notion that building a beneficial and long-term network is based on building relationships. Accordingy, we have developed this unique platform that enables you to not only meet fellow Members, but more significantly, continue conversations over the months and years to come. 

By investing in Membership, you have taken a step in investing in yourself and the long-term success of your career. You now have a regular opportunity to get to know others who are equally committed to their practices - and they in turn will introduce you to curators, artists, clients and others.

You will also have access to the Members' Gateway, discounts to panel discussions and talks - and much more. Read full details
