Applications are open for artists to hold Peer Forum at Camden Arts Centre in 2019. Peer Forum, Artquest’s annual Peer Mentoring programme aims to assist artists by providing them with the funding, space and resources necessary to establish their own peer mentoring groups.
Established in 1965, Camden Arts Centre is a place for world-class contemporary art exhibitions and education. With artists at the core of the programme, Camden Arts Centre strives to involve members of the public in the ideas and processes of today’s artists, and the artists who inspire them. Our year-round programme includes exhibitions, artist residencies, education projects, talks and events, courses and offsite activities.
Artquest will fund a peer mentoring group at Camden Arts Centre for 6 sessions over a 6-8 month period and seek applications from individual artists to take the lead in coordinating these peer mentoring groups. Through the Peer Forum programme, Camden Arts Centre creates space for artists to instigate dialogue, develop ideas and research together, whilst providing institutional support. Camden Arts Centre welcomes applications from artists who have been working (outside of education) for 5 years or more. Camden Arts Centre particularly welcomes applications from peer groups that also include curators and writers.
Applications can be made via our website : https://www.artquest.org.uk/project/peer-forum-2019/application-form-peer-forum-2017-all-venues/.
