Artists’ Practice Day

Past Project 2014

A partnership with Camden Arts Centre on Artists Practice Day, a peer mentoring session inviting artists and arts professionals to discuss their practice with artists.


Whenever artists needs help or advice their first option is usually to ask their peers: this is why networks are so vital, since fellow artists can share experiences of their working life, from the practicalities of realising work, recommending suppliers, making introductions to curators and giving critical feedback that helps work develop.

Three sessions were held that built on our research of how peer mentoring networks work, and our previous Forum programme. Evaluation and learning from these sources led to our revitalised Peer Forum programme.

Sessions, each recorded and available below, included conversations on self-representation (Rosalind Davies), writing about your work (Colin Perry), and alternatives to art school education for artists (Open School East).
