Older Artist Labs 2018

Three one-day labs for up to 10 older emerging artists were run in Galashiels, Glasgow and Inverness during April and May 2018.

Participants working in a range of different artforms explored where they are now in their development and where they would like to be in the future; how their creativity can be nourished; and how artists can challenge themselves to develop.

The sessions were facilitated by Magnetic North’s Director, Nicholas Bone, and Creative Director of Red Bridge Arts, Alice McGrath.

The Labs were open to artists aged 50+ who had recently embarked on a new artistic career, including those who:
  • Trained at a young age and had returned to their practice later in life
  • Worked in the arts in different capacities and were changing direction
  • Were coming new to their artform in their later years
