Posted on: 21st February 2020

Belfast Exposed ‘Futures Artists’ is a career development and mentoring programme for artists and photographers in post-education or early stages of embarking on their photographic career. It is tailored to support the development and presentation of new work by professional mentoring, promotional opportunities, exhibitions and publications.

In light of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, Belfast Exposed has changed the initial phase of the Futures Artist programme  We want to reassure you this will not affect your application. As an interim measure Belfast Exposed are developing new strategies for working remotely and intend to interview shortlisted candidates through online channels such as Skype, Facetime and Google hangout.

Due to social distancing and self-isolation measures implemented due to COVID-19, in the initial phase, our ‘Futures Artists’ career development and mentoring programme will be delivered online.

Selected artists will benefit from the following:

  • Mentorship with a specialist photographer in their field.
  • A bespoke programme of experts and consultants to support career planning, develop a 5-year artistic plan and a 2-year business/marketing plan.
  • A tailored research and critical debate programme.
  • Financial support that could go towards for research, production costs and artists/curator fees.
  • A significant solo exhibition (aligned with an established artist or photographer exhibiting in our main gallery).
  • Dedicated marketing activities promoting you and your work.
