Why a Digital Folio?

As an artist, writer, curator or other professional in the Arts Industry it is essential to have an online presence. A digital folio (also known as an ePortfolio) can be used to apply for:

  • National or overseas residencies
  • Local government commissions
  • Group or individual exhibitions
  • Grants or other sources of funding

While you are at university your digital folio can also be used to record your progress and as a digital assessment tool. For example it can:

  • Contribute to your assessments and reviews
  • Allow you to share images and text with your peers and lecturers
  • Be used to apply for further study or employment

Your lecturers will expect you to have digital folio and will at times create assessment tasks that will be assessed via your folio. If you already have a personal website you can use this, and simply add pages that relate to your assessment tasks.
