With over 450 creative featured, Cluster London Fairs has formed a community of practitioners, which it supports through a programe of monthly gatherings, career support, one-on-one development sessions, talks, seminars and workshops, as well as the opportunity to take part in an ongoing series of curated projects and more. Cluster is more than a fair; it is a joint venture, a share journey, creative safe house and exercise in community building.
Extending its roots and opportunities, last year’s launched Cluster Artist-in-Residence programme aims to provide a tailored experience with a broad network of opportunities to counter the ‘one-size-fits-all’ logic that so frequently pervades our industry. Working from a studio in East London with specific equipment provided in response to the artist’s needs, residents will be given a custom-designed programme of one-on-one mentoring sessions with industry professionals who will guide them through research and production, and help shape their concluding solo show.
