Jamboree is a new residential workshop format developed by LOW PROFILE which aims to foster a peer network of artists & curators who are invested in each other’s practices, providing useful and supportive connections; provide a focused professional development opportunity and maximise energy and resources, by gathering a group of artists together from across the country to share knowledge, practice and networks.
Announcing Jamboree 2018!!!
Jamboree 2018 // 28th June -1st July 2018 // Dartington UK
Jamboree 2018 will bring together 150 visual artists, curators & programmers from around the UK in a relaxed outdoor setting, on the Dartington Estate near Totnes, Devon, UK.
Jamboree has been developed in response to our experiences of struggling to meet other artists, curators and programmers for a range of reasons including money, geography, time, other work and family commitments.
Through the Jamboree programme of events, LOW PROFILE hope that attendees will meet new people, find out about each others work, build new relationships and make connections that lead to new projects. Jamboree 2018 also offers the chance to stop, engage, interact and recharge in a positive, critically-engaged environment.
This project is developed in partnership with a-n The Artists Information Company and Plymouth College of Art and is part funded and supported using public funds by Arts Council England.
