Central Bloc is a platform to facilitate collaboration, discussion, and support for Central and Eastern European artists and curators residing and practising in the UK.
This is the pilot stage of the project and we would like to hear from you what forms of support are needed and what barriers are faced by CEE artists and art professionals in their career progression in the UK.
Central Bloc members will have access to Centrala’s diverse range of seminars, conferences, and workshops, as well as peer mentoring schemes, contact lists and critique sessions (both digitally and at Centrala’s Birmingham gallery). They will also have an opportunity to jointly host exhibitions and events, including during Digbeth First-Friday – the bustling monthly showcase of the Birmingham art world.
Networking events and development opportunities will also be created in London.
With many years of experience and an extensive, trans-European contact network, Central Bloc will also provide artists with support for funding applications and opportunities to obtain international residencies through travel grants.
Central Bloc membership is free and requires submitting a membership application form, which can be accessed here: https://goo.gl/MN85ba
