The Leverhulme Arts Scholars Summer School offers an opportunity to work alongside other artists and peers to critique, discuss and develop your own art practice and make new work with the opportunity for a public presentation. The programme also offers opportunities for discussion, research field-trips and gallery visits to develop a wider understanding of the contemporary visual arts ecology of galleries and ways to exhibit work. Leverhulme Arts Scholars will also have access to Wysing’s 25th anniversary thematic Futurecamp events programme.
