12pm Screening of Glossolalia by Tom Varley and tour through Standpoint’s studios

 2pm – 5.20pm Symposium at Shoreditch Town Hall
How to work as an artist in the UK?
Who: we intend to engage artists, art professionals and students who are keen to explore career development and support structures.
What: this symposium responds to the geographical and economical constraints of contemporary art production, and directly addresses the current climate of art practice within different regions across England, Scotland and Wales.
Bringing together key thinkers and practitioners to discuss this pertinent subject, Mapping Art Practice will consider not just the money but the overall ecology of visual art practice – including the support structures artists make for themselves, and the institutions they interact with.
Questions our panels will address:
London versus the UK artworld: how do we differ, compete and interact?
ART-DIY: What do artist-led / artist-focused organisations and initiatives achieve?
NETWORK WORTH: How artists can benefit / be restricted by their work with institutions
Confirmed speakers include:
David Powell researcher and co-author of recently published PLACE Report and Rebalancing Our Cultural Capital
Ellen Mara De Wachter independent writer and curator, currently Curator, Public Collection Development at Contemporary Arts Society
Cheryl Jones director of Grand Union, Birmingham

Mapping Art Practice in the UK has evolved out of Standpoint Futures, a residency programme that is specifically for artists working outside of London. Based at Standpoint, the purpose of the residency programme is to provide artists with access to the London art world, to help develop practice and career within the context of London, whilst supporting networks between the city and regional art world.
