  • 16th-20th November is Enterprise Week
  • Mead Scholarships and Fellowships – £10,000 can be awarded as a fellowship to graduates, who can apply for 2 years. They are flexible about what the money can be spent on, they just look for well thought out ideas and committed people. Deadline in April 2016.
  • Artquest.org.uk is useful for how-to guides, information and opportunities
  • In December there will be a Wimbledon specific Employability series for info on hob hunting, CV building etc.
  • A huge part of an artist’s practise is admin and the most successful artists are ones that accept this early on
  • DACS, A-N, Carrotworkers Collective – useful sites
