The sharing of the arts is an integral way of helping individuals in communities find the means to express themselves and create change in their society. To enable this often small but powerful change, artists need confidence, know-how and resources. The aim of Advancing Artists is to equip ambitious artists with the inspiration, knowledge and confidence to begin to develop their work within communities.
In 2017, in conjunction with Farnham Maltings, we invited Surrey-based artists of all disciplines to take part in a free, three-day professional development course exploring what is required to be an artist working with community groups in Surrey. All artists, from photographers to actors, ceramicists to musicians, are welcome to take up this opportunity that could add a new branch to a creative career.
Advancing Artists will continue to grow as a CPD development programme for professional artists based in Surrey during 2018 and beyond. If you are interested in finding out more about Advancing Artists please contact Lucy Murray at Farnham Maltings firstname.lastname@example.org
