Planning your second arts career (from the archives)

(Premium content) Premium content

Skills are transferable, age is a factor and sometimes you just need to take a chance when it feels right.

Most of us transition between different roles throughout our careers in the arts. This might be a leap into an entirely new career, or leaning into a role that is similar to what you already do, but either way, the transition is never easy and comes with a degree of risk and self-doubt. We asked five people in the arts why they made the change and what insight they could offer on transitioning.
