Artist Support Recipes

We are an international group of artists involved in artist support and development. During 2022 we are collaborating on a research project supported by Creative Scotland’s Four Nations grant (funded by Arts Councils for England, Wales and Northern Ireland and Creative Scotland).

We are working together over 12 months to explore, share and research what artist development might now become in a post-pandemic world. We believe that for artist development activities and opportunities to be successful, they need to be created by artists for artists. Development activities need to be responsive to the challenges of pandemic life as well as in response to the future challenges of climate breakdown. We believe that artists can be problem-solvers and that a robust, resilient creative sector can be best nurtured by supporting the skills and expertise of artists. We will create a template for artist development which brings in the best from different countries and experiences, and focuses on what artists working now really need to thrive – an Artist Support Recipe Book
