As part of ‘The Successful Artist?’ programme, this drop-in participatory workshop carves out a space for artists to come together and write their own artist manifestos.

What does becoming an artist mean now? What can we learn from “do it yourself attitudes” and what are the manifestos for sustainable artistic practice? In times of austerity with reduced funding opportunities and a competitive landscape, what does being an artist look like? What spaces can an artist inhabit in today’s oversaturated creative workforce?

This event encourages people facing some of these issues to join us in writing a set of manifestos, a list of wants and needs guided by first-hand experience of DIY methodologies.

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