Artquest Peer Forum at Cubitt

Along with a recently launched Public Programme of events, workshops and learning opportunities, Cubitt hosts a Peer Forum in partnership with Artquest to facilitate alternative and grassroots approaches to peer-led practice, learning and self-organisation. Artquest funds an annual peer-initiated mentoring group over a 6 month period at Cubitt, with access to our new Events and Education Space – Studio 5 – to devise their own programme of talks and activities. Please note that, in order to facilitate peer-led learning, these are closed groups, however occasional public events might be held.

As a peer-led, artist-focussed organisation, Cubitt is keen to find new ways to support artists and their practice. Cubitt welcomes applications from artist and practitioners from the broadest range of backgrounds and those experiencing financial, social and/or other access challenges. Applications from groups of artist who have an existing informal relationship is encouraged. Please visit Artquest’s website for more information, guidelines and to apply.


The Labours of Love peer mentoring group brings together a number of artists, researchers, and designers whose work considers affective labour and the physical and legal conditions in which it takes place as well as its expression within artistic practice. Bringing together participants from a number of different disciplines and wide age range the group will be a forum for intergenerational exchange, and a site to nurture productive conversation and encourage cross-pollination. The group will meet at Cubitt from June 2017.

TheNetwork11  was recipient of the first Cubitt Peer Forum from November 2015 to May 2016. It included artists who are each grappling with contemporary art practice in an exciting array of forms including performance, sound and imagery. Beyond the moments of activity as echoed from art groups such as the Pan African Connection and the BLK Art Group in the 1970s/80s, they come together as a new generation of professionals that will not only tease new questions regarding the positions of British based artists of colour and LGBT communities, but also, to reignite relevant discussions brought about by older generations.

Cubitt Archive Research Project with Goldsmiths, University of London

To celebrate its 25th anniversary in 2016, Cubitt is collaborating with the MFA Curating at Goldsmiths College to provide an exciting opportunity for two postgraduate students interested in researching the Cubitt Archive and the London art scene of the past 25 years, to produce a joint and/or individual project to be presented in Autumn 2016.  This will be a self-initiated, project-based initiative; the student will be free to research the Cubitt Archive to produce a suitable outcome –publication; blog; small exhibit, etc, with support from Cubitt staff and a dedicated Cubitt studio artist. More information on the archive page; a selection of the students’ research is being published on their blog.
