OCTOBER UPDATE 2013

In April 2014 Beacon will be curating Seen Created a weekend event of performance art at the Terry O’Toole Theatre in North Hykeham.  This will part of Creating A Scene a major exhibition at the National Centre for Craft and Design in Sleaford from 25 January- 20 April 2014. The full programme for the weekend will follow.

Beacon is currently finalising plans for its 2014 project celebrating Beacon's 10th anniversary. We will be working with some of the artists and heritage sites we have worked with since 2004. Next year will also see the introduction of B.professional a new career development programme for artists, curators and art professionals. The three strands of this programme B.resident, B.mentored and B.talking will be open to applicants at all stages of their career and will offer a structured and integrated career development opportunity. These exciting plans will, of course, be subject to current and future funding applications and we will keep you updated on progress.

In tandem to B.professional Beacon is now in a position to offer for short-term rental a substantial studio space with living accommodation. Ideal for artists, curators and other creatives who need time and space to think and focus on their practice away from their normal routine. Email John Plowman for details. john@beaconartproject.com
