Artist Professional Development Programme

Our Professional Development Programme creates networks and opportunities to nurture the development of early to mid career artists living in Kent.

Sign-up to meet other artists, take part in free talks with invited speakers as well as conversations with curators, and join trips to galleries and arts organisations.

The programme will allow you to gain insight from previous Biennale artists on how to realise large scale arts commissions, as well as advice on funding and sustaining your practice.

Signing-up will also add you to our mailing list giving you access to opportunities for work, funds and commissions via our networks.
