Platform: NW Artists Development Lab

September 19, 2018


I’m pleased to be a mentor for Platform: North West Artists Development Lab from Signal Film & Media.

Platform is a two-day artist development programme led by artists and curators – to connect, support and develop emerging artists from across the North West, with a focus on how creative technology or digital media as well as collaborations and collectives can develop or expand artistic practice.

More about the programme:

Hosted in the unique location of Barrow-in-Furness located on the rugged West Cumbrian Coast, the two-days will provide an exciting programme of activities led by a diverse mixture of influential artists and curators working in the North.

The days will introduce hands-on skills in using creative technology as well as practical sessions, one-on-one portfolio crits and panel discussions designed to support each artist in sustaining a career working in the North West both inside and outside of major cities. It will also provide a space for conversation and cross-disciplinary exchange, with the aim of nurturing new collaborations amongst the artists involved. The lab includes the opportunity to take part in a funded exhibition, either by submitting a proposal individually or collaboratively with other practitioners from the group, as part of the wider platform programme.
