Applications for Satellites Programme 2021 are now open

Satellites Programme is the accelerated development programme which sits at the core of Collective. Through it, we aim to prepare the next generation of creative practitioners, supporting them to develop the confidence and critical skills they need to thrive. Satellites Programme is more than an exhibition opportunity. Participants have described it as a pivotal experience, due to the level of support received from Collective and the chance to develop through discursive engagement with a group of peers.

We encourage applications to Satellites from across the spectrum of contemporary art and creative practice in Scotland including, but not limited to: studio-based material (paint, sculpture, paper, etc), photography, moving image, research, collaboration, curatorial, production, social engagement, activism, performance, writing, and critical enquiry.

This year the selection panel for the Programme includes Harry Josephine Giles, Adomas Narkevičius, and Alberta Whittle.

For further details on what the year-long Programme entails, eligibility criteria, and how to apply, download the Satellites Programme application pack here. Once you have downloaded the application pack, which includes the Application Form, EDI Monitoring document and Access Document, submit your application via Submittable here. The deadline for applications has been extended to Tuesday 30 June 2020.

Collective strives to ensure that the Satellites Programme is open and accessible to all and recognises that disabilities and restraints on an individual’s capacity take many forms and are not always visible. A small fund is available to support any individual who needs support in the completion of their written application to the Programme.
