StudioBook is an intensive, tailored artist development programme from Mark Devereux Projects designed for early to mid-career visual artists working in any discipline.
At the core of the eight month programme is StudioBook fortnight: two weeks of concentrated seminars, workshops and one-to-one mentoring sessions, led by established artists, curators and arts professionals.
Responding to the requirement for continued professional development throughout an artist’s career, with specific focus on those that are teetering between early and mid career, StudioBook provides an important injection of information, knowledge and inspiration for artists at an integral point within their practice.
StudioBook takes place every two years, with the next programme planned for 2019. The information below gives further detail of the 2017 and 2015/16 programmes:
StudioBook 2017 took place in Manchester between May – November, supporting artists: Anna Columbine, Charlie Franklin, Clare Holdstock, Claire Tindale, Elizabeth Kwant, Jilly Morris, Lada Wilson, Libby Scarlett, Lucy May Schofield, Mandy Payne, Susan Gunn and Suzanne O’Hare.
