We are seeking applications from emerging artists to join the fifth year of Open School East (OSE), an independent, self-directed and outward-facing artist development programme. Our Associates Programme is free, non-accredited and a year-long, starting in January 2018 and running until December 2018.


The associates come together two days a week (Thursdays and Fridays) to receive tuition, meet their mentors, work and collaborate on projects, and plan activities. Tuition is delivered through a combination of workshops, seminars, group crits and excursions, a number of which are open to the public. While at OSE, the associates share their practice via open studios at different times throughout the year, and develop new work to be presented at a final group exhibition and events series.

The associates programme is structured around three terms. Term 1 is about immersion and the realisation of a project through collective learning. For this, we invite an artist to conceive the curriculum. In contrast, Term 2 and 3 are shaped by the associates who self-direct their learning around their practice and shared interests, and formulate a programme of public workshops and events. Throughout the year, opportunities to participate in public projects led by guest artists and to respond to invitations from external organisations are offered to the associates.

In 2018, the curriculum for Term 1 will be developed by artist Marguerite Humeau, whose work combines prehistory, archaeology, occult biology and science fiction to resuscitate the past, conflate the subterranean and subcutaneous, all the while updating the quest genre for the information age. We, as a studio, will go on a three-month quest to design unknown and invisible worlds. We will excavate evidence and attempt to prototype unreachable ecosystems: define the protagonists, their interrelationships, triggering points, their origins and their ends. Involving a number of guest workshop leaders from a range of disciplines, the adventure will result in a collective project that will be produced / assembled/ performed by us at the end of the three-month expedition.
