Latitudes ArtistLab

ArtistLab is a professional practice skills development programme for artists looking to build a career in the industry.

Presented by established arts professionals, in collaboration with Latitudes Online and independent artist Mandy Johnston, this free 5-session intensive seminar programme will train participating artists in some of the key skills needed to build a strong foundation for a career in the arts. In addition, artists will develop work, under the supervision of an established artist, towards an online exhibition hosted by Latitudes. This programme is made possible by the generous support of the National Arts Council and the Norval Foundation, Cape Town.

The Open Call process has come to a close, and we are thrilled to announce to participating artists, selected by the ArtistLab Selection Committee.
