Bow Skills | 2019 Programme

Submitted by Nunnery Gallery on Thu, 07/02/2019 - 12:16

Bow Arts seeks to support creative professionals at all stages of their careers. In 2015 Bow Arts launched Bow Skills in response to an artist survey which showed over 90% of practicing artists find it useful to receive further support outside formal education. Bow Skills is a dynamic and relevant programme of Continuing Professional Development (CPD), which is informed by an artist steering group and open to all creative practitioners across London.

The 2019 programme of talks, panel discussions, new skills labs and peer crits is open to all – and includes talks with the British Council to personal peer crits with guest artists Anj Smith and Melanie Manchot. Read on for more information and to book tickets.
