Wales Artist Resource Programme is an artist run professional development resource that enables Welsh and Wales-based artists to receive mentoring, training and advice from arts professionals.
The programme comprises a number of schemes that will be delivered responsively according to the ambition and needs of participants in relation to the arts sector, whether skills-based, entrepreneurial, business skills, and/or academic.
Through WARP g39 will provide the invaluable work of specialist advice services to help young and emerging artists in Wales to achieve success in an exhibiting career or visual arts enterprise. Its mission is to provide a supportive resource that will encourage and develop a strong network of artists working throughout Wales to contribute to the contemporary art scene both locally and internationally.
The schemes include…
Peer-to-Peer These one-to-one sessions are available to all visual art practitioners regardless of previous training or academic level. We advise participants on how to further their practice by identifying obstacles and how to overcome them, and highlighting strengths and how to build on them. The sessions are delivered in a supportive and encouraging manner, with follow-up advice delivered shortly afterwards. They will be held regularly at the gallery by appointment and there will be sessions touring venues across Wales.
Resource Area A dedicated workspace house at g39 including:
• Equipment and facilities for the basic administration of an art practice
• A directory of recommended businesses and services related to art production and support
• A library of periodicals, exhibition catalogues and monographs
• A searchable database of artists
• A comprehensive knowledge bank of relevant FAQs, advice, strategies and support.
• Available as a bookable space for artists and groups as a place for meetings and seminars.
Group Mentoring Programme This mid-term mentoring service enables artist-led groups or individual artists to initiate a project of their own devising with the assistance of g39 mentors. It will serve as a general induction to the administration and planning usually connected with setting up a cultural project, and will also offer specific guidance throughout the project set-up. Three projects will be mentored per year and will be selected on an application process in October.
Talks and Events A series of seminars and lectures for the promotion of good practice, professional development and the dissemination of related information to all interested groups and cultural stakeholders in Wales.
WARP Resource Area Opening Times: Tuesday – Friday 11am-5pm
