Slate Residential: LEVEL UP

Mon 15 - Fri 19 Jul
Worsley Marriott

Devised for independent, Black artists who have created a company around their practice and want to take their organisation to the next level. LEVEL UP creates a space for reflection, strategic planning and building networks. During the residential artists will explore the mission and vision of their companies, company structure and governance.

Other areas covered include:

  • Income generation, Fundraising and Sustainability
  • Embedding diversity within your practice
  • Marketing and Communication
  • Networking, Partnerships and Relationships

As well as group work, the residential will allow plenty of time for personal reflection. The residential will be led by Slate Enablers and feature inspirational guest speakers from across the arts and culture sector.

There isn’t an application process as such, we’re looking for expressions of interest from artists who are looking to develop their practice and join a network of Black-led organisations who will transform the UKs cultural landscape.  Anyone not selected for the residential will be offered other Slate support/signposted to other places of support.

If you would like to submit an expression of interest, email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by 26 June 2019 with the following information:

  • Your name
  • The name of your organisation (if different to your name)
  • A short biog (100 words max)
  • A sentence or two explaining what you would hope to gain by attending the residential
  • Website address (if you have one)

Selected participants will be notified by 30 June 2019.
Please advise if you have any access requirements that need to be met in order for you to attend.
