In autumn 2021, NCAD’s Clancy Quay Professional Development Programme will collaborate with the Arts Council of Ireland Superprojects and the Project Arts Centre to launch a new blended professional development programme for recent graduates (under and post-graduate).
The Superprojects programme which runs from October 2021 to February 2022 aims to equip emerging artists with essential professional skills required to navigate the complexities of the art world. Sessions will take place bi-monthly on-line, on Tuesday evenings from 6-8pm with three days on-site/in-person in Dublin across the programme (October, December & February) for studio and gallery visits and collaborative sessions.

NCAD Superprojects for Emerging Artists

This new professional development series will give 2021 graduates the opportunity to access knowledge, training and feedback from Ireland’s leading experts in the visual arts, who will offer seminars and workshops on themes such as:

• Artists time management
• Presenting and talking about your work
• Studio visits and networking
• Writing applications/proposals
• Tax and finance for artists
• Marketing and social media
• Documenting your work

As well as providing training and practical information, participants on the series will be given the opportunity to access mentoring and one-to-one advice with curators and arts professionals. At the end of the series, participants will have developed a strong community of practice as well as increased knowledge and confidence in how to progress and thrive in their careers as artists, bridging the gap between University and the professional world.
