Jamboree is an ongoing artist-led project initiated by LOW PROFILE which aims to
- offer a space for artists & curators to make new productive relationships
- support artists & curators to meet, and to share practice, test out ideas & broaden the reach of their work
- offer a space for discussion, sharing of concerns and mutual support
- create social environments that support the development of a geographically dispersed, national network of artists and curators

Jamboree 2018 // 28th June -1st July 2018 // Dartington UK
Jamboree 2018 brought 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.
Jamboree 2018 was 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.
