CLOSED: Peer-to-Peer 2023/4 – Open Call for Artists

Apply now to be part of our peer-learning artist development programme.

*Applications Closed*

Graphic saying peer to peer

Peer-to-Peer is an artist development programme led by Metroland Cultures. It offers:

  • Supported peer learning
  • An artist bursary
  • A residency with Metroland Cultures

There will be a series of 10 days of supported peer learning, reflection, discussion and development. These will all be artist-led and held in valuable community gathering spaces.

The programme offers a chance to learn from your peers, to grow your practice and networks and to build confidence.

Who is it for?

Peer-to-Peer is for artists and creative thinkers with a strong connection to Brent (e.g. through where you live or work) and who work with communities. We are looking for people who would like to be part of a mutually beneficial network.

Perhaps you have reached a stage in your career where you would value support in networking, collaboration and connecting with other artists?

Maybe you face barriers to furthering your creative development? Or feel like your experience is under-represented in the arts?

If this sounds like you, then check out the Open Call info below and apply before 28th November!
