The Mapping Art Practice in the UK research project and symposium has evolved out of the Standpoint Futures residency programme.
Standpoint Futures visual art development residencies are for emerging/mid career artists, based outside Greater London. They are designed to be flexible and responsive to the project, needs and desired outcomes of individual participants. The residency’s chief aims are to provide high quality, individualized opportunities to develop the artist’s practice and career, and to integrate London and the regional UK art world to promote access and the exchange of ideas.
Standpoint Futures and MAP symposium is led by Fiona MacDonald, Curatorial Director, and Matilda Strang, Residencies Coordinator at Standpoint.
We are grateful for the support of Arts Council England, Arts Council Wales, Creative Scotland and the Fenton Arts Trust, who are core funding the programme with Standpoint in 2013/14.
MAP symposium is partnered by Cass Art the UK’s leading art supplies retailer.
