Jerwood UNITe is an intensive 10-week residency and professional development scheme at g39, during which the organisation will foster a strong studio community for five artists. The scheme is designed to attract and benefit artists who may ordinarily be reluctant or unable to partake in a studio residency. Being part of the Development Programme Fund will enable g39 to make significant investment in the artists across a range of their needs – whether practical, financial, health-related, attitudinal or otherwise. g39 also anticipates investing in institutional change too, in response to this learning.
g39's ambition for the scheme is to equip artists with confidence, skills, relationships, and knowledge to realise their ambitions, and allow a wider range of voices to contribute to the contemporary art community.
