A look at alternative learning models and practices with ESP (Extra Special People) and AltMFA.
Extra Special People (ESP) is Eastside Projects’ Associates scheme, supporting the development of work, ideas, connections and careers through a programme of events, opportunities and projects. Members become active contributors to a practice-led peer support network and benefit from Eastside Projects’ experience of the contemporary art world and regional, national and international contacts. www.extraspecialpeople.org
Eastside Projects is an exhibition space with many differences. It is a free, public space that is being imagined and organised by artists. We commission and present experimental contemporary art exhibitions, and propose ways in which art may be useful to society. www.eastsideprojects.org
AltMFA is a radical Masters programme established by artists for artists as a free alternative to studying a university-based Fine Art MA in London. We meet every Monday night in different private and public venues (houses, galleries, studios). The course is run unhierarchically by everyone involved and comprises of crits, theory sessions, group reading exercises, guest lectures and excursions.
Friday Salons provide professional development and firsthand accounts on current cultural phenomena. Devised in conjunction with Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2012.
