Artists Together is a peer-led artist-development programme funded by Arts Council England via St Helens Arts in Libraries NPO. The programme aims to support all artists who are based in St Helens, but attendees to date primarily work in visual and mixed-media arts.

Building on the successes of the Artists Together programme, St Helens Arts in Libraries NPO is now looking for applications from people who may wish to lead Artists Together for the period: May 2024 – March 2025.

We are interested in hearing from individuals or collectives who have a vision for and commitment to:

  • Responding to the ideas of a range of artists in St Helens, whilst generating opportunities for artists to give each other peer-support, and access professional developmental opportunities.
  • Creating spaces and opportunity for artists to test, share and create new work. Nurturing & strengthening the Artists Together network by inviting artists of all to meet each other, share skills, experience & celebrate their practice.
  • We would expect the Artists Together – Lead Artist to:
  • Provide regular group sessions with Artists Together attendees either online or in person as appropriate.
  • Offer 1:1 support sessions to Artists Together attendees as appropriate.
