The Artist Programme is ideal for professional practitioners with an interest in working from collections, and with people.

This collaborative initiative supports the development of your research and practice through a series of artist-led discussions, making sessions, and critical enquiry. It provides peer-led learning opportunities, networking, and professional development in a mutually supportive context.

Each session focuses on a theme with suggested readings to encourage critical engagement with artistic practice and working in the public realm. You are invited to present projects, pose questions and lead activities for the group. The focus of the sessions is decided with participants.
