Peer Network Champions: Open Call for Proposals

a space’ arts are look­ing for 2 new peer net­works to sup­port through our programme.

As part of our Artist Resources programme, we’re proud to support Peer Networks created and led by visual artists from the region and we are now recruiting peer networks as we look to expand our programme.

We are looking for 2 new peer networks with local, national, or international members that have originated in or have members based in the SO postcode area.

If you have been working with, or have developed an idea to work with, other visual artists and arts professionals in the SO area and beyond in order to explore, research, test or exchange ideas then you could be our next Peer Network Champion. Peer Network Champions will act as the lead organisers and point of contact for their peer network’s year-long programme of activity with ‘a space’ arts.

We are particularly interested in hearing proposals from networks that will champion those who are underrepresented in the SO cultural offer as well as further afield, including but not limited to: global majority artists, artists with disabilities, and LGTBQIA+ artists, and those with caring responsibilities.

The successful applicants will receive a £2,000 fixed fee in addition to support from the ‘a space’ arts communications team and use of our communal and meeting spaces. The deadline for proposals is Monday 4th April 2022.
