Made in Arts London is a not for profit enterprise originally founded by students, for students.
Made in Arts London launches a new collection annually, comprised of current students (at the time of application) curated by a changing panel of industry professionals.All applicants receive written feedback from their submission, regardless of whether they are selected or not. Artists and designers working in all media and disciplines are encouraged to apply, and successful applicants are awarded a two year tenure, with their work available to purchase online (www.madeinartslondon.com) as well as at many events throughout the year.
In order to fully represent all of our artists, Made in Arts London participates in and organises a wide variety of events, exhibitions and fairs. Ranging from self-initiated exhibitions and design and illustration led pop-ups, to working in partnership with established markets such as Canopy Market in Kings Cross, to exhibiting annually at the Affordable Art Fair Hampstead, there are opportunities available to everyone.
Alongside the sale and exhibiting of work, Made in Arts London provides free workshops, networking activities, one-to-one advice and targeted promotion for all our artists and designers. We also work alongside a range of external partners, providing further opportunities through mentoring initiatives, monetary and material bursaries, as well as being entered into exclusive competitions.
UPDATE, 29/04/20: We regret to announce that due to unforeseen circumstances we are no longer accepting submissions for our 2020 Collection and have paused this opportunity ahead of the closing date. Due to the disruptions to our programme caused by the pandemic, we feel it is best to pause this years submissions and to re-open it again next year in 2021. By making this decision we hope that anyone who applies will have the same high standard opportunities and professional development we strive to provide. We apologise to anyone who hoped to apply this year and has not yet been able to do so. If you have applied, please bear with us as we will be contacting you shortly with an update on what this means for your application.
