Tracing PAPER 2016 – Artist Mentoring Scheme

PAPER are seeking 9 artists within the North-West region** to undertake our mentoring programme. The scheme is open to artists who could benefit from a sustained period of mentoring, + to those who use paper, or wish to explore the use of paper in their practice. The programme starts in January 2016 + will run for 9 months, culminating in an exhibition at PAPER from 1 October – 5 November 2016.

Sessions will take place in studios or other appropriate locations, where the host artist will present their work to other mentees, plus a representative of the PAPER team to offer advice + support.

Gallery artists + arts professionals from the region will also be invited to provide critical feedback.

Artists are expected to form a cohesive group, offering mutual support as they prepare for the group exhibition. Selected artists need to be committed to the programme for the full 9-months.

A small budget is available to cover travel expenses for artists/studio visits outside of the Manchester area for each of the 12 sessions. There is also a £150 production budget for each artist for the exhibition and as a Tracing PAPER mentee you will also have a presence on our website.

** NB: Applications accepted from artists based in West Yorkshire, Leeds, Sheffield, Stoke, and the Peak District, as well as Greater Manchester, Lancashire, Merseyside, Cheshire and Cumbria.
