Ella Husbands: Plants on Water (detail)

Graduate Monthly

Professional Development Support for Artists

Next Event: Wednesday 31st October, 6:30 – 8pm FREE

This month we are attending the opening of Federico De Cicco’s exhibition: Inner Rooms – A Homage to Andrei Tarkovsky at ONCA where the artist, curator Maria Medici and Gallery Manager Lydia Heath will be in conversation about the work.


As part of ONCA’s artist support programme we run a monthly meet up for graduate and emerging artists in partnership with Lorna Ough, curator of Maybe What Happens Now Is, and recent Brighton University graduate (Critical Fine Art Practice).

The aim of these events is to create an informal peer led network offering emerging artists the support and resources necessary to continue developing their creative practices in Brighton. This can take the form of crits, reading groups, advice sessions, skill sharing and visiting speakers. Alongside the monthly meet-up there is also an online forum for sharing resources and continuing discussions.

Graduate Monthly takes place on the last Wednesday of every month and is open to anyone currently based in Brighton and the surrounding areas that graduated from a visual art course in the last 5 years. Artists who haven’t undertaken formal academic training but are looking for support to develop their work and meet other like-minded creatives are also very welcome to attend.
