The Interrogating Project scheme that used to have three entities will now operate as one group. Still meeting six times a year, the new arrangement will enable us to run longer, more substantive and interactive sessions. 

We will continue to focus on discussion of the content and processes involved in our work.  Rather than working around three themes, the focus will be based around five universal themes in art so that everyone can more easily find their place in relation to the stimulus to their work and its references to others. The new arrangement will also provide time for deeper exploration of professional development subjects related to, for example: exhibitions: interpretation: critical engagement: the art market place: workshops.

A second Interrogating Project ‘process’ based exhibition (i.e. works in progress) and of Artist’s books’ - will be held at Bridport Arts Centre during the two weeks prior to, and the first week of, Dorset Art Weeks 2018.

Increased recruitment will necessitate a new, parallel group. Membership includes all the DVA benefits including discount on Dorset Art Weeks fees. 

For more information about individual and small group mentoring, please contact the office.

We want to develop further our support for this area of activity so that it contributes more articulately to DVA’S focus on promoting informal CPD - continuing professional development - and developing its reputation for exhibitions and events.
