Good Things Incubator Programme - developing sustainable and socially beneficial art practice in Morecambe.
The Good Things Incubator programme will bring together Morecambe-based artists & 4 recent LICA (Lancaster Institute of Contemporary Art) graduates to develop their practice & pathways toward creative careers. We will build on partnerships with Lancaster Uni (LICA&LUMS), Creative West End (place-based arts partnership) & artist-led orgs - to promote collaboration, widen opportunities and support artistic ambitions.
Working collaboratively with partners we will provide:
A bespoke programme of support - mentoring, talks, peer learning, sustainability planning and networking.
Access to LICA’s Arts curriculum & networks.
Commissions to showcase work at large-scale public events.
We want to support and invest in emerging local artists to develop their work in a way that interacts with and benefits the wider community, creating new creative opportunities in the area.
Commitment to attending as many workshops and sessions offered via the programme as possible is expected from participants and a keen interest in working with peers to grow and develop a culture of support and the development of a socially rooted creative sector in Morecambe is essential.
Deadline for applications: Friday 2nd September 2022 at midnight.
The programme is scheduled to start in Oct 2022 running through until February 2023. Details will be confirmed in September with participants.
Participants will also get:
Access to an optional studio space in Morecambe Arndale,
Receive an artist commission of £1360 to develop their work and run a workshop or creative happening at a Creative West End Market in Autumn or December.
