QUAD Artist Training and Development course

Launching in May 2015, this unique training opportunity is a 20 week course with one day tuition per fortnight with studio time and staff support in between taught sessions. This course has been developed and will be delivered by Derby QUAD in partnership with local and national arts and cultural organisations. 
The programme aims to enable artists and creatives from across the UK to access high quality digital, participation and career development skills. It will support you to develop and establish a stronger voice within the digital and new media landscape, and to increase sustainability within your artistic career.  
What does the course involve and what will you gain? 
  • Research and development into current participatory practices and online engagement tools
  • Have your portfolio reviewed by project partner Curators (or develop a portfolio)
  • Get to know Scratch / Makey Makey / Conductive Thread / Conductive Paint / Arduino / Isadora / and other new media that compliments  and augments traditional art forms and participatory skills.  
  • Build your confidence through supportive and playful exploration in a digital play lab, with participatory elements for peer engagement and learning
  • Develop new work (or a research project) based on your current practice, combined with new media and participatory elements. 
  • You will spend a few days to a week at a leading UK arts organisation shadowing staff and delivering workshops/activities if appropriate. 
  • Develop essential fundraising and proposal writing skills
  • Weekly studio time in QUAD’s digital and artist studios, will be available free of charge for all programme participants.
  • Share your project with project partners at a final celebratory event with Curators and project partners at Tate Britain
