Most of the opportunities we list are selected by Artquest staff: for quality, professional status, relevance to our audience and accessibility.

In our selection, we ensure that adequate and appropriate conditions, payment and budgets are offered. We post opportunities that we judge to be career-enhancing and of wide interest to our audience of professional visual artists. You are welcome to suggest an opportunity for listing on our site, but we reserve the right to make the final decision to list ourselves.

Opportunities that we list include:

  • Exhibitions
  • Residencies
  • Commissions
  • Awards, prizes and competitions
  • Grants and fellowships
  • Calls for papers and conferences
  • Professional development opportunities

Please note that we do not list:

  • Exhibition listings
  • Jobs, internships and volunteering opportunities
  • Residencies that are wholly artist-funded or that charge a fee
  • Opportunities where there is a significant cost for artists to participate
  • Opportunities for amateur artists or seeking audiences to participate
  • Courses and workshops – but we can add you to our Art Directory as a course/workshop provider or studio
  • Opportunities that are not open to UK artists
