The process once selected
Once artists and representatives have been selected in June 2019, here is what happens next:
Step 1: Receive invitation to participate.
Step 2: Sign contract and T&Cs and agree conditions of participation, including availability for studio visits and consultation, and agreement to share findings from the project.
Step 3: Agree a series of three or more studio visits and co-design a bespoke schedule of activity in consultation with Art360 Foundation team based on needs matching each artist's budget of up to £6,000. The cost of a self-funded place for Art360 Scotland is £10,000.
Step 4: Film an interview discussing your artistic practice and legacy needs. Films will be available on our website.
Step 5: Participate in a schedule of confidential meetings with experts who could range from legal advisors and tax specialists to asset valuation experts, digitisation specialists, archivists and more.
Step 6: Identify key issues including, for instance, relevant images for processing, and vulnerable assets for digitisation.
Step 7: Work in consultation with Art360 Foundation to capture and curate selected and newly discovered elements of your archive on our website to share the story of your practice, the value of ephemeral materials and the programme.
Step 8: Help identify regional hubs whether the artist is linked geographically or through exhibition history or collection, with whom Art360 Foundation may organise workshops. Workshops for artists and the wider public will focus on best practice to capture, curate and disseminate knowledge about the crucial importance of safeguarding the cultural heritage of British artists.
As part of our programme, artists and their representatives will engage with leading professional experts across a full spectrum of knowledge, key to formulating and commencing a lifelong legacy strategy.
Art360 Scotland awardees have a period of 12 months to spend the full allocation of funds and provide Art360 Foundation with quarterly progress updates.
