Artsadmin offers a unique and free one-to-one support service to UK-based artists working in contemporary performance, at any stage of their career
Sessions are informal and artist-led, offering an opportunity to talk about anything from artistic ideas and project development to funding and contexts for your work. The format of these sessions has been developed in response to artists’ feedback and research.
Who is the service for?
This is a free service that we offer to artists and creatives, which to us includes arts workers, producers, designers, production managers, curators, arts leaders, technicians, writers, dramaturgs, academics and thinkers.
What happens in a one-to-one support session?
This is a one hour session and you can meet with us once a year. These sessions are places of support, which means everything spoken about in these meetings is confidential. This also means this isn’t a place to pitch work that you hope to get produced at Artsadmin. The support team won’t share anything about you or your project with the rest of the Artsadmin producers.
What art forms can we support with?
Our team’s knowledge is in contemporary performance and live art.
How are the sessions delivered and what access support is available?
The sessions can be delivered in person at Toynbee Studios and online via Zoom. Our Zoom account can access Otter.ai captions embedded and we can offer BSL interpretation. Both will be provided upon request. Please indicate any access requirements when you book your session.

Book a session with one of our team
Please do take the time to read about the person you’d like to meet with before you book in. Each person has different experience, knowledge and expertise, and your experience will vary based on the person you meet.
Please only book one session. Due to capacity, we are only able to offer one session per artist each year.
Please note: We can support you in idea developments and professional support, however this is not a place to pitch work to Artsadmin’s producers
If you can’t book using Calendly, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 020 7247 5102.
