The project will include three workshops for invited participants. These workshops will explore the following:

  1. Questions of ‘Risk’
    How ‘risk’ might be mitigated, differently understood, or productively exploited, in the context of funding the development of artists and aesthetics that fall outside of the market norm.
  2. Distinctions of professional/emerging/community/amateur
    Would productively troubling the distinctions between professional / emerging /
    community / amateur in the conceptualisation of artist development programmes encourage broader access to development schemes?
  3. International models
    Drawing on the conclusions from the first two workshops, this session will examine how different international models of new work production and artist development might offer fresh perspectives to the UK context.

Ideas, practices, processes and reflections from the workshops will be shared on this website.
