"The only lasting truth is Change." – Octavia Butler

As a team, we, like you, have been watching the news with deep anger and sadness, and reflecting on the structural inequalities laid bare during the pandemic, within the arts sector and across wider society in the UK.

Artsadmin is a majority white organisation and, as such, we are actively committed to educating ourselves and are in the process of discussing and actioning a lot of changes in our organisation. Now is the time to be clear. We need to stand up against racism. We stand with Black, indigenous, people of colour (BIPOC).

We are gathering anti-racist resources for our weekly e-digest newsletter. If you would like to share your own research with artists and arts professionals in our community, please make a submission so we can share these via this newsletter.

Artsadmin, as a team, is making donations to funds supporting Black, indigenous, people of colour, including LGBTQI+ communities, in memory of George Floyd and the many people who have suffered at the hands of police brutality. Our anti-racist work continues.

Black Lives Matter.

    Artworks produced can be temporary or semi-permanent, they can be purely digital or involve some hard copy element such as posters or letters. They can last one day or until the end of September.

    A.8) New Emergency Fund for Dorset artists

    The Dorset (&BCP) Artists’ Emergency Fund was initiated by b-side after a series of collaborative conversations through the What Next? Dorset Chapter. It was identified through the What Next? meetings that individual creatives have experienced a massive income decrease, some losing all. It became apparent that many individuals are falling through the gaps of financial support – so we initiated the Dorset (&BCP) Artists’ Emergency Fund to help support our local artists.

    The fund is for all Dorset-based artists, including (but not limited to) visual artists, musicians, comedians, performers, directors, actors, writers, filmmakers, producers, curators etc. To apply artists must be aged 18 or over, have a bank account and be unable to pay for essential living costs because of the loss of freelance income. Grants of between £100 and £500 are available.

    Please note that if you are working primarily in scriptwriting, staged plays, traditional circus, puppetry, craft, painting, sculpture, traditional forms of dance, opera and music, this is outside the focus of Artsadmin's work.

    To book an online advisory session, visit our website and fill in the Google survey so we can understand a bit about your practice and what you would like to discuss during an advice session. One of our advisors will be in touch within two weeks to arrange an advisory.

    C.2) Artsadmin: Radar Sessions

    Covid-19 has severely disrupted the financial situation of so many artists so we're dedicating a week to talking about money and financial advice. We’ve heard from artists that they feel overwhelmed by the reality of their financial situation, and that their fear and anxiety are increasing as this crisis goes on. Being a freelance artist means a lot of the general ‘how to do money’ tutorials don’t line up with our professional reality, especially in a Covid-19 context. So we’d like to help.

    We’re offering two Radar workshops - one about personal finance, another (this one) on professional finance - and sharing guidance and resources for artists on our blog and social media on demystifying financial health and being more mindful about money.

    C.6) Mesh: A Sharing Hub for Emerging Artists

    Chisenhale Studios is delighted to launch Mesh, a wiki initiated by Esther McManus and developed with this year’s Into the Wild cohort of emerging artists. It is an online community-built space by and for UK artists, to support artistic practice through sharing information, knowledge and resources.

    The name Mesh reflects the search for new cooperative art world structures, signalling that we are already in this art world together, and that we all have valuable ideas and knowledge to contribute.

    Divided into three broad sections: networks, resources and inspiration, Mesh is a continual work in progress, which we hope is user-friendly and flexible enough for artists to contribute to, take from and shape in ways that are useful for both the individual and peers around the country. How-to guides have been built into the site to support those that are unfamiliar with wikis.

    C.16) Artist Coaching

    Coaching is a practice of dynamic thinking and active listening enabling someone to hear their thoughts out loud and find new insights and actions. It provides a supportive space for artists in which to work out what matters – now, next, and in the long term; to open up possibility and hold uncertainty; to overcome doubt and stuck-ness; to develop new strategies for getting things done; and to better understand how, where, when to make work visible.

    Coaching is a one-to-one confidential process. I work face-to-face in east London and/or remotely via phone or video calls. Many artists choose to work with me at monthly intervals for 4-6 months, others more frequently and some over a longer period. Please contact me to arrange a free introductory conversation.

    D.1) Broccoli Seed Commissions: Selection Panel Call out

    Broccoli is a producing company, helping create work for the page, stage and elsewhere. We have a particular focus on work by/for/about lesbian, bisexual and queer women.

    We're looking for three panellists to help us decide on two new Broccoli commissions.

    Joining our selection panel will mean reading the submissions we receive and meeting with the other panellists to decide which projects you think we should look to commission. We are able to award £2 500 to the successful seed commissions.

    You might be interested in understanding the process behind selecting work through an open call: wondered how the decisions were made and felt you had something to contribute to those conversations and deliberations.

    We are particularly interested in hearing from people who are not usually part of this conversation: those who work behind the scenes, or who feel they are always the ones applying instead of deciding.

    E.5) Live Work Studio Flat in Walthamstow

    I am an artist and designer who has recently moved into a nice ground floor flat with a shared garden at the back and am looking for a new flatmate.
    The area is super quiet and friendly, it is close to Walthamstow and Blackhorse Road on the Victoria Line and Overground Line and it is also just a few minutes walk to the William Morris Gallery and its wonderful park.
    There is a double bedroom available with a double bed and enough space for a desk, wardrobe and other furniture. There are also some storage places in the flat if needed.
    The flat has a living room that can be used as an art studio, depending on what you want to do with it, so creativity is welcome.
    Bikes, barbecues, gardening, and sunny reading are all welcome :-)
    The rent is £690 + bills and the room is available immediately.
