Peer Forum, Artquest’s annual Peer Mentoring programme aims to assist artists by providing them with the funding, space and resources necessary to establish their own peer mentoring groups. Artquest are working in partnership with a number of London’s most respected art spaces to host these groups giving participants the opportunity to build relationships with their host organisation.
Artquest will fund a peer mentoring group at four organisations over a 6 month period. Artquest and its partners are seeking applications from individual artists to take the lead in coordinating these peer mentoring groups.
Selected artists/groups will receive:
- An all-inclusive award of £1,800 to run 6 peer mentoring sessions over a 6 month period with a regular group of 8-12 other artists.
- A space provided by one of Artquest’s project partners for the peer mentoring sessions to take place (and in some cases basic refreshments and presentation equipment).
Artists awarded this opportunity will be expected to coordinate all aspects of the peer mentoring sessions, liasing with host organisations and participating artists to arrange a mutually agreeable time for peer mentoring sessions to take place
