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 respected art spaces to host these groups giving participants the opportunity to build relationships with their host organisation.
Established in 1965, Camden Arts Centre is a place for world-class contemporary art exhibitions and education. With artists at the core of the programme, Camden Arts Centre strives to involve members of the public in the ideas and processes of today’s artists, and the artists who inspire them. Our year-round programme includes exhibitions, artist residencies, education projects, talks and events, courses and offsite activities.
Artquest will fund a peer mentoring group at Camden Arts Centre for 6 sessions over a 6-8 month period and seek applications from individual artists to take the lead in coordinating these peer mentoring groups. Through the Peer Forum programme, Camden Arts Centre creates space for artists to instigate dialogue, develop ideas and research together, whilst providing institutional support. Camden Arts Centre welcomes applications from artists who have been working (outside of education) for 5 years or more. Camden Arts Centre particularly welcomes applications from peer groups that also include curators and writers.
Camden Arts Centre will provide a meeting space either in its Meeting Room or Drawing Studio depending on the days that the meetings will be held. The dates and times of meetings should operate within the gallery opening hours: Tuesday – Sunday 10.00am – 6.00pm, Wednesday 10.00am – 9.00pm.
Deadline for applications: Monday 30 September 10am.
