Making It 2023

Show­cas­ing emerg­ing artists, mak­ers, and design­ers in the Southwest.

MAKE Southwest, in partnership with Design-Nation, Find a Maker/Craft Festival and Low Carbon Devon, is inviting applications to be part of its ambitious exhibition and development programme for emerging talents in the Southwest.

Held every 2 years, Making It aims to be the leading showcase for emerging artists, makers and designers in the Southwest, celebrating innovation, diversity and collaboration in craft and making. The exhibition will see up to 20 emerging talents shown in the prestigious Jubilee Gallery at MAKE Southwest, along with an engaging programme of exhibitor and public events.

We invite Southwest-based emerging artists, makers and designers from all backgrounds, groups and levels of education or training to apply to exhibit in this show, and benefit from the support and nurturing that this group of influential cultural organisations can offer. If you are within 5 years of graduating or setting up a creative business and are resident in the Southwest, please read the application pack and apply via the link.
