Peer-to-peer sessions are opportunities for artists to discuss their work with members of the g39 team. You can use these sessions to get critical feedback on your work or to discuss proposals to funders, commissioners and venues. We cannot give specific advice and guidance on the eligibility of your proposals to specific funders, exhibition or commission opportunities but the sessions provide discourse and encouragement specifically about your practice.
Peer-to-peers are available to all visual art practitioners regardless of previous training or academic level. The sessions are delivered in a supportive and encouraging manner. In the meeting we advise you on how to further your practice by identifying obstacles and how to overcome them, and highlight strengths and how to build on them.
Peer-to-peer sessions are highly subscribed and we only have capacity to deliver 25 across a whole 12month period. Therefore, it may not be possible to arrange a meeting immediately and it is likely that more people request a meeting during the year than we are able to see.
One-to-one sessions also provide you with a chance to discuss and gain feedback on your practice. They are often more specialised sessions focussing on specific areas or approaches to practice. One-to-one sessions are usually with visiting artists or curators that work nationally and internationally. The sessions are advertised, last around 30 – 40 minutes and places are usually limited to 5 over the course of a day. Look out for details on our website, twitter, Facebook and the Warp e-bulletin.
We are currently able to offer Peer-to-peer sessions free of charge, however there is a charge of £5 for One-to-one sessions.
If you are interested in one of these sessions please contact firstname.lastname@example.org using the subject header P2P.
Before attending a Peer-to-peer or One-to-one you will be asked to provide:
- A brief statement about your practice (this might be a description of your work, what your concerns are and/or the ongoing direction of your work.)
- A current CV
- An outline of what you would like to achieve from the session (what advice or information you need, or if you just want an informal chat about your work). The more information you can give us in advance the more prepared we can be for your session.
Sessions are held regularly at g39.
We look forward to hearing from you!
