Axis is proud to announce the launch of the continued Social ARTery programme through our Let’s Get Phygital commissioning series for hybrid physical/digital participation. We are helping artists to think through radical and innovative ways of how we integrate technology into our lives in a post-pandemic world. Through a combination of support we are encouraging artists to do some social/digital hacking and address digital inclusivity and simultaneity. The learning will be shared in a webinar for members and a toolkit helping artists navigate hybrid deliveries. Answering a few questions in this survey will help us assess the need and design material to support you and your work.

Please help us help you work better. What do artists need to work better in hybrid digital & physical ways?

Deadline: 5 September 2022

With September just around the corner, we wanted to let you know about a new season of events coming soon to Axis! Back to School with Axis is a series of workshops and talks aimed at freelancers and other creative professionals to give you the tools you need to navigate some of the most common challenges in your art career!

Including masterclasses by some of the biggest experts in the sector, we’ll be looking at how to make your grant application stand out, how to do your own PR and marketing (on a shoestring) and how to manage budgets and grow your social media. Axis members can access these events FREE of charge (normal price: £5 per event) #AxisWednesdays!

After collaborating on policy proposals, to improve European arts and culture sector, the Destructura participants shared their ideas for collaborative, transnational art projects, which they will work on over the next year. The outcomes of those projects, will inform further policy recommendations for policy makers, arts and education institutions and arts organisations.

After a huge round of applause for the organising team, volunteers and participants, the 9-day forum in #Tallinn has now ended and the participants are returning hone with many happy memories and a greater insight which will inform their future careers.

Axis are proud to be partnered with Destructura and we look forward to supporting the participants collaborative projects and helping disseminate the findings of their research.
