As part of The Successful Artist?, this drop-in, participatory workshop, led by artist Raju Rage, carves out a space for artists and creatives to come together and write their own artist manifestos.

What does becoming or being an artist or creative mean now? What can we learn from ‘do it yourself’ cultures and what are the manifestos for sustainable artistic practice? With reduced funding opportunities and in a competitive landscape, what does being a creative or cultural producer look like? What spaces can an artist inhabit in today’s oversaturated creative workforce?

We encourage artists facing some of these issues to join us in making manifestos. Raju Rage will guide you to create a large-scale collective manifesto based on individual contributions, using a variety of art materials.

Raju Rage is an interdisciplinary artist who is proactive about using art, education and activism to advocate creativity. Rage is also a creative educator with an interest in radical pedagogy. They are an organiser and member of Collective Creativity arts collective, an associate lecturer at UAL and is part of Shades of Noir Teaching Within Programme. They also work as artist in residence for Tate’s schools and workshops programme. Later this summer, they will be facilitating a residency programme at The White House in Dagenham to develop artists’ and creative practitioners’ professional development.

The Successful Artist? programme is proudly supported by Heritage Lottery Fund, as part of the new RA Collections programme.
