Invitation for Applications
newplatform.art is a not-for-profit organisation supporting early career artists with a professional development programme. The purpose of the np.a Professional Development Programme (np.a PDP) is to equip those at the early stages of their career with practical guidance and mentoring on how to make their practices sustain them financially, as well as creatively.
Following the success of the 2021 programme, we have decided to again invite applications to participate on the np.a PDP through an open call.
We engage professionals from all aspects of creative and corporate life to deliver practical guidance to early career artists, from seminars, workshops and group mentoring, to individual pairings with established artists. All elements are delivered online. Once accepted onto the np.a PDP, artists will participate free of charge. There will be a maximum of 50 places for 2022.
This year’s programme will consist of :
Early career artists based in the UK, both art graduates and those who have not followed a conventional route to become artists, who can demonstrate they are committed to their practice. We wish to see those who want to make their practice sustain them financially and who would otherwise struggle to access professional development support.
There is no application fee and the programme is free to all selected artists.
