g39 Fellowship - ONE

1 April 2019 - 0 January 0000

The g39 Fellowship is a new initiative that fosters, extends and reinforces a peer group of artists over a five-year programme. It forms part of the Freelands Artist Programme alongside equivalent initiatives organised by PS2 (Paragon Studios/Project Space) in Belfast, Site Gallery in Sheffield and Talbot Rice Gallery at the University of Edinburgh.

We’re pleased to announce that the first five artists we’ll be working with on this programme are: Kelly Best, Ian Watson, Fern Thomas, Neasa Terry, Jennifer Taylor.This is the first of four Fellowship cohorts, and we will be working with a total of twenty artists over the five-year programme. The artists will take part in a structured programme of studio practice and self-directed research at g39 over a period of two years.

The Fellowship will comprise an intensive series of workshops and training, contact time with mentors, visiting artists, curators and g39 staff. We’ll also be organising guest speakers and lectures, group peer critique sessions, plus away days, research visits, remote networking and social activity. In addition the Freelands Artist Programme will also organise a symposium annually and an exhibition opportunity at the end of each two-year cohort for all participants. By the end of the programme, twenty artists will have participated in the g39 Fellowship.
