An opportunity to find out about what the West Midlands has to offer to art students and early career artists. Deborah Robinson, Head of Exhibitions at The New Art Gallery Walsall (lead partner, Engine) and Anneka French, Project Coordinator of New Art West Midlands will outline the programme and opportunities offered by the network which was formerly called Turning Point West Midlands.

We will also hear from three artists and curators at different stages of their careers about the development of their practice. We are delighted to welcome speakers Simon and Tom Bloor, Emily Mulenga and Nathaniel Pitt to discuss their practice.

Through these case studies and further discussion, we will explore a range of topics such as initiating projects, finding funding, the importance of networking and supporting your practice.

This event is targeted at art students and early career artists.

This event is delivered by Engine, New Art Midlands’ professional development programme for artists and curators.
