Near Now Fellowship: Meet the Fellows

Meet our new Fellows and be the first to hear about their ambitions for the year. ​


17th July 2017

What time

6:00pm - 8:00pm



14-18 Broad Street,





Between May 2017 and March 2018, our third Fellowship cohort will work as part of the Near Now Studio, undertaking a tailored programme that will support them to research and create ambitious new work, reach new audiences and progress their careers.

Join us for pizza and drinks (on us!) and help celebrate the start of a successful Fellowship.

Each Fellow will give a brief introduction to their work and share some early insights into their inspirations and ambitions for their Fellowship. Followed by a chance to ask questions about their practices, hang out, chat, and hopefully make some new friends.

The Fellows
