JamFactory’s Associate Program provides high-level skills and business training for artists, craftspeople and designers working in the areas of Ceramics, Glass, Furniture or Metal Design. Associates spend two years developing their own work under the guidance and mentorship of accomplished creative staff while gaining specialised knowledge and expertise through collaborative work on JamFactory projects, products and commissions. Associates are selected once a year from applications received from all over Australia and the world with the aim of creating studio teams with strong focus on development of ideas, creativity and making skills.
JUMP is a national mentoring program for artists aged 18-30, who are in the first five years of their professional practice.
JUMP artists are supported to undertake a one on one mentorship with a leading professional of their choice, focused on a funded creative project.
JUMP artists also access online profiling and professional development opportunities, and significantly expand their national network during the 10-month mentorship period.
JUMP is serious about championing our nation’s next generation of arts industry leaders, and ensuring that geography and cultural diversity are no barrier to identifying and promoting artistic excellence.
Northcity4’s project space provides a great opportunity for makers/artists working on a specific project such as a grant outcome, postgraduate study, recent graduates, mentorship, internship or artist in residence (interstate or international) for a maximum of six months. Northcity4 promotes sharing skills, community and sustainability, the studios also share the warehouse with an exciting teaching program running a range of classes for small groups.
