We know from our Graduates that what they miss most about studying is a sense of purpose and structure, so we created this programme, open to Graduates from any undergraduate or postgraduate Fine Art programme, to help them combat these feelings and provide a supportive dialogue about their practice.
Our Graduate Programme not only acts as a support network but is structured to provide an environment that helps you sustain your momentum. It focuses on the development of creative practice and pathways for professional growth. Each programme is a year long and is led by inspirational artists. Last year, Turner Prize winning artists, Assemble, took the helm. This year, artists and curators Mindy Lee and Sarah Gilliam are leading our Graduate Programme.
The programme is built around 6 sessions spaced throughout a 12 month period, starting in February. The sessions provide you with a forum which offers stimulus and positive critique in a sympathetic setting. This can help you sustain motivation, iron out problems, generate new ideas and can provide the impetus to keep developing your practice. There is a focus is on exhibiting and exploring curation, with the programme culminating in an end of year, student organised exhibition.
The programme is not assessed and does not result in certification of any kind.
