ARTQUEST Peer Mentoring

As part of New Contemporaries’ commitment to provide practical support and advice to the exhibitors in Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2016, we are partnering with Artquest to provide a free one-to-one mentoring session for all participating artists with respected art world figures including Benjamin Cook (Lux), Lucy Day (Independent Curator) Manick Govinda (Artsadmin) and Soraya Rodriguez (Independent Curator).

During this free 1-hour advice session, mentors will feedback on the artists’ work, suggest potential directions it might take, where it might be sustained within the contemporary arts ecology and introduce artists to organisations and individuals who might support them. This is a valuable opportunity to access experienced specialists and experts with a wealth of knowledge about the realities of forging a career as an artist in the UK art scene and beyond.

As part of the New Contemporaries public programme Artquest is also organising two public events that focus on the impact and methodologies of Peer Mentoring for artists. Subscribe to the Artquest e-letter to hear when these are announced.

Artquest is an organisation dedicated to supporting artists develop their practices and careers by connecting them to the resources, opportunities and networks they need.
