The Portfolio Review is a series of individual meetings and consultations offered to beginners by experienced artists, curators, design critics, editors and manufacturers. Young people can have a half hour conversation with an expert of their choice to verify their achievements and skills, to get professional advice on their projects, to get helpful tips on what to further pursue or how to present their work or promote products. Such meetings can sometimes result in getting new ideas into production or in receiving an invitation to participate in an exhibition or to put the ideas in writing.
