Throughout the year, our team will host a large scale programme of free 1-2-1 sessions, aimed at supporting many of the artists who have not been able to access opportunities at Wysing and to keep in touch with the artists we already know.

To book a 1-2-1 slot for July, please visit our Eventbrite page.

Reception 1-2-1s

Sessions will be made available on the first day of each month on a first-come, first-served basis and will be open to all. A number of priority sessions will be reserved for those who have been denied access to opportunities in the past, whether due to caring responsibilities or discrimination due to race, gender, sexuality, disability or class. You do not need to disclose your reason for requiring a Priority 1-2-1.

Sessions will last up to 45 minutes and can be used for feedback on new work and ideas or support in a number of areas including funding applications, budgeting, digital production, social media and more. We ask artists to decide an area of focus when signing up and to consider the interests and expertise of each member of the team. Please bring any work or materials for review during the session.
