PAPER, Manchester: Artist Mentoring Programme

PAPER, Manchester

PAPER is looking for 9 artists within the North-West region to undertake our mentoring
programme. The scheme is open to all artists who feel they would benefit from a sustained period of mentoring; and to those who use paper, or are willing to explore the possibilities of paper.

Artists based within the North West region of England – including Cheshire, Merseyside, Greater Manchester, West Yorkshire, Derbyshire and Staffordshire. The programme starts in October 2017 and will run for a 9-month period, culminating in an exhibition at PAPER from 30 June – 11 August 2018.

Each session will take place in one of the chosen artists’ studio (or an appropriate location), where the host artist will present their work to the other mentees; as well as a representative of the PAPER team, who will be on hand to offer advice and support. We will also invite gallery artists and arts professionals from the region and beyond to provide critical feedback. As part of the programme it is expected that the artists will form a cohesive group, offering mutual support as they prepare for the group exhibition.

Travel expenses and a production fee of up to £150 will be paid.
