DIALOGUES is a rolling programme, offering free 1-2-1 sessions. These informal sessions with Nottingham Contemporary staff are aimed at early-career artists based in the Nottinghamshire region, as well as any UK-based practitioners (should sessions remain available).

These sessions will last up to 30 minutes and give participants the chance to discuss their work, receive advice and critical feedback on topics such as artist statements, portfolio building, funding applications and more. Please see our staff bios below for more information on staff specialities and areas of expertise.

Sessions will be made available at the beginning of each month and can be booked on a first-come, first-served basis through our Eventbrite.

Please read our FAQ guide here before making a booking.

Please include information in your booking stating what you would like to focus on during the session, and send us any work to be discussed a week in advance, in order to allow staff time to review.

For more information please contact cananbatur@nottinghamcontemporary.org
