Over the next few years Metal is looking to further develop a programme of support for early career artists, those in their first few years of defining themselves as an artist. Though not exclusively, we are particularly interested in how we can help early career artists who live or work in our host cities of Liverpool, Peterborough and Southend on Sea.
● those who are aged 18+ in their 1st to 4th year of creative practice, post-student status (if applicable)
● those who left school and did not enter Higher Education but still keep up a regular creative practice
● those who have recently graduated in the past three years
● those who have entered the arts later in life after pursuing a different occupation and are within the first four years of this.
*This is not an exhaustive list, and Metal welcomes artists from all disciplines; theatre, visual art, film, music, writing or a mixture of some or all. Metal are particularly interested in supporting artists from diverse backgrounds, with unique personal perspectives to offer. If you’re unsure whether you fall into the early career category please get in touch with the site most local to you.
Clicking the sign up link will take you to our registration survey, which takes about 5 mins to complete. By doing this, we invite you to have your say about how we should develop our future programme, and so we can respond to the challenges facing early career artists.
Once you’ve completed the survey you will be signed up to the Metal New Artist Network newsletter. You can also join our closed Facebook group here.
