Peer Forum at The Photographers’ Gallery

Website: https://www.artquest.org.uk/project/peer-forum-2017/

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. Calls for the PEER FORUM group hosted by The Photographers’ Gallery in 2017 are now open. Selected artists/groups will receive an all-inclusive award of £1,800 to run 6 peer mentoring sessions over a 6 month period with a regular group of other artists. The group will meet at the Eranda Studio at The Photographers’ Gallery, a 70msq space with tables, chairs and a high-spec video projector.

The peer group at The Photographers’ Gallery would be best suited to emerging, rather than established, artists working with either digital or analogue forms of photography within a contemporary art context. Applications from groups of artist who have an existing informal relationship is encouraged. The Photographers’ Gallery suggests meetings have a minimum of 10 and a maximum of 15 artists, and is looking for proposals for mentoring programmes that are about more than sharing practice but about moving each participants’ specific, identified project forward over the duration of the sessions.
