How to work as an artist in the UK?

Who: we intend to engage artists, art professionals and students who are keen to explore career development and support structures.

What: this symposium responds to the geographical and economical constraints of contemporary art production, and directly addresses the current climate of art practice within different regions across England, Scotland and Wales.

Bringing together key thinkers and practitioners to discuss this pertinent subject, Mapping Art Practice will consider not just the money but the overall ecology of visual art practice - including the support structures artists make for themselves, and the institutions they interact with.

Mapping Art Practice in the UK has evolved out of Standpoint Futures, a residency programme that is specifically for artists working outside of London. Based at Standpoint, the purpose of the residency programme is to provide artists with access to the London art world, to help develop practice and career within the context of London, whilst supporting networks between the city and regional art world.

This event is partnered by Cass Art and has received lottery funding from Arts Council England
