“Being an Associate Artist at The Point has opened up possibilities that I never imagined possible at the current stage of my career and has given me new skills to be able to forward think and take on more ambitious projects. The space, contacts, open door and the opportunity to receive unique and personalised support is a precious gift! Thank you”.

During a structured period of support, we aim to enable artists to develop artistically and identify appropriate markets for their work.
