The Artists’ Represent Recovery Network is a professional development programme open to 10 London-based, freelance, ethnically diverse artists working in arts & health in a participatory or community setting. The project is aimed at artists with at least 3 years of experience in this field and each artist has access to professional skills development sessions, peer-to-peer support and on-the-job training in a South London and Maudsley (SLaM) hospital ward. This project is a partnership between three organisations: London Arts and Health, Raw Material and Arts & Health Hub.
The training will take place next year in 2023 as a mix of online and in-person mentoring, training, action learning and on-the-job paid placement on SLaM hospital wards. Artists can receive up to £3000 total for participating in the opportunity.
Artists with any kind of artistic practice are welcome to apply.
Each selected artist will receive compensation for attending the sessions.
- 6 paid group sessions (£150 per session) with our lead facilitator, 4 of which will also include inspiring and diverse guest speakers from the arts and health sector;
- Access to 3 hours of private online support with an art psychotherapist, should any difficult subject matters arise;
- 4 Action Learning Set sessions (each 5hrs).
- Additionally, each artist receives £400 to deliver 2 days of creative sessions in mental health wards. Artists can also develop their own peer-to-peer network outside of the sessions, supporting one another.
Those who complete the programme will also receive £1700 seed money, aimed at supporting artists to undertake training, develop ideas and partnerships, apply for funding or purchase materials that contribute to the development of the work they do.
