SUPPORTING EMERGING VISUAL ARTISTS
The Fruit Factory Network (FFN) is an initiative that promotes and supports visual artists based in Hull and East Riding. This professional development course aims to export 20 early-career artists to four cities across the UK from April 2019 – March 2020.
Each off-site activity will be followed by a gathering at the gallery to discuss and review outcomes in ‘Advice Surgeries’ lead by the Humber Street Gallery team and industry experts. A culminating symposium will be held in April 2020 with selected speakers from the network.
WHAT DO FFN MEMBERS GAIN?
By equipping participants with an awareness of what has been achieved elsewhere and integrating them into a national creative network, this programme seeks to build their aspirations and raise the benchmark for visual art in Hull.
The culmination of the project will be held at the gallery in the FRUIT FACTORY NETWORK: SYMPOSIUM. In April 2020. The symposium will also mark the opening of a group exhibition involving the participants which will have been developed during the programme.
