Making applications


It’s important to identify how you can support your work and make time and space to develop. Being a creative means being proactive and researching and finding opportunities, that includes making time to apply for exhibition opens, competitions, residencies and funding to support and develop your practice and career.

Artist Mentor can provide the appropriate expertise to support you in this area, including ensuring you have the most succinct texts and enticing images that reflect your work at its best, enabling you to achieve better outcomes. This might include, for example:

  • Writing artist statements, supporting text or cover letters
  • Selecting and editing images
  • Titling work
  • Writing funding applications
  • Preparing budgets
  • Identifying appropriate opportunities
