Practice makes Practice – LAUNCH EVENT | Food + Social with BAZ
We were joined for the launch of Practice makes Practice, a new artist development programme run by artists for artists.
We also invited BAZ (Matt Westbrook & Chris Poolman) along for a bite to eat, BAZ are a self-elected art-world think-tank based at Grand Union in Birmingham who launched The Regeneration Game in April 2016 at NewBridge Project Space.
Food + Social provided an opportunity to meet BAZ and learn more about the Practice Makes Practice programme and the upcoming events and opportunities.
Practice makes Practice is an artist development programme run by artists for artists, initiated by The NewBridge Project. Practice makes Practice focuses on developing artistic talent and equipping artists with the necessary skills to manage their practice, bridging the gap between art school, studio practice, the gallery and beyond. It is a regular programme of events, workshops, opportunities, talks, field-trips, exchanges and mentoring, creating a forum for shared learning, critical conversation, space for networks to cultivate and alternative models of practice to develop.
Practice makes Practice is open to all through a membership scheme. Creating a supportive cohort of artists to shape the programme ensuring it develops in response to the needs and interests of its members. The programme is open to our Studio Members, and to the wider arts community through an associate Artist Membership, for details on how to join please click here.
