INTER_CHANGE is a new 12-month programme which will supporting a group of local creatives at the start of their careers, offering professional assistance and guidance.

Those aged 18 and over living in Hull or the surrounding areas in the beginnings of a career in the arts, no matter the medium, were invited to apply.

Our 2021 cohort are benefitting from mentoring, peer to peer sessions and exchange visits with other creatives and organisations in the North of England.

Along with real practical support, INTER_CHANGE provides an environment to share ideas and to build stronger networks that can open up opportunities, lead to collaboration and enable the exchange of work in and out of Hull.

Over the next year, INTER_CHANGE will also offer a series of masterclasses covering topics such as funding opportunities, making applications and budgeting. At the end of the programme, participants will showcase their work at Humber Street Gallery.

INTER_CHANGE is made possible and is free to take part thanks to funding from Arts Council England and Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.
