Open call for artists who have been out of education for a minimum of 5 years to participate in a year-long programme of monthly peer mentoring forums. The forums will be composed of a mixed group of visual artists who are with and without disability with the mix envisaged as 50/50. The monthly forums will be held at The Showroom, London, and disabled artists are invited to participate from their base/home via remote access. Applications are welcome from visual artists who are interested in collaboration and in pushing the boundaries of their artistic practice, with applications from disabled artists especially welcome. Participants will be expected to attend an introductory evening as well as all 12 forums, and to actively engage in the programme through peer crits, discussions, workshops, and talks by art specialists.
The project is scheduled to begin in late May 2018 with an introductory evening to be followed by the start of the forums on the second Monday of June. Thereafter, the forum will meet on the second Monday of each month.
