BAIT Artist Development 2018 Cohort

BAIT aka "Birmingham Artivists In Training" is an artist development programme from Free Radical, launching May 2018. It creates space for ‘Artivists’ aged between 16 - 30 in Birmingham and surrounding areas to develop as socially engaged artists. 


Led by Artistic Director Roger Robinson, BAIT is split into two terms, each ending in a public sharing. BAIT allows young artists to develop all aspects of their career through groups meetings, one-to-one mentoring with Roger Robinson, two sharings, critical guidance & artistic support, opportunities to see work around the country, etc. It is springboard for artists who feel stuck with an unshakeable "emerging" label.
