Artist Mentoring 

In order to support practitioner development in the region, our new programme will see the opportunity to gain mentoring support from established artists. More information about this programme will be available in the near future. To register your interest in the programme please contact Grace Davies at coordinatortpsw@gmail.com

 

Critical Writing

Our new Critical Writing project will support emerging writers to develop their practice. Through the programme we aim to:

 - encourage new critical writing within and about the South West visual arts sector through traditional and contemporary methods.

 - provide a critical context in which artists, critics and curators can engage in discourse.

 - raise the profile of practice in the region, nationally and internationally through the dissemination of critically engaged writing.

- engage on an international level with highly regarded critics, writers and curators
