OUTPOST Creative Programme 

Over the next three years OUTPOST aims to contribute to the better representation of artists and practitioners from a diversity of backgrounds, by promoting upcoming artists through programming and providing beneficial developmental opportunities. The OUTPOST Creative Programme will facilitate a series of exhibitions, events, residencies, and workshops over three years, and is funded by the Arts Council England to support and provide opportunities for artists from lower-socioeconomic backgrounds, and/or individuals that consider themselves as a working-class artist. 

OUTPOST is accepting expressions of interest that will influence the selection of artists during the next three years of OUTPOST Artistic Activity. The OUTPOST Steering Committee will review expressions of interest on a regular basis and successful individuals will be invited to exhibit by a member of the steering committee.
