When & Where
ZAP is run and curated by the esteemable Rosalind Davis and Annabel Tilley, with a huge amount of discernment, energy and gusto. Andrew Bracey
In 2012 Rosalind Davis & Annabel Tilley co-founded Zeitgeist Arts Projects to support ambitious artists with practical ways to sustain their practice. The DIY Educate artists' professional practice programme Show & Tell and their innovative touring participatory talk: The A-Z of Surviving as an Artist are designed to encourage artists to learn from other artists, network, engage, thrive and raise their profiles. Tilley and Davis also curate exhibitions of outstanding new and established artists, like their launch exhibition, Collectible, an exhibition of 68 new, promising and established artists; the Zeitgeist Open Exhibition 2012, and 2013's much anticipated: Discernible. They recently were part of an installation at the ICA for Artlicks' second birthday, asking the question How do you Survive as an artist? Read the resulting publication here.
Intelligent, Comprehensive and Fun!
'What you all are doing with DIY Educate is admirable as it gives those people who are trying so diligently to
continue as artists a chance to feel connected with other artists in the same pursuit,
to hear how art practice is discussed at the moment and to begin to feel part of an art community...
I can see that it is important in the current financial climate to create the opportunities ourselves.'
'I am absolutely amazed at how effective your session was at making me take action.'
‘Thanks very much for the helpful and motivational talk’
' I learned what it means to be professional artist nowadays: It is not enough to produce one's art - we need to write statements, applications, press-releases, ,keep our web-sites updated, maintain real and virtual networks, etc. etc. And of course everything has to be done really well. In that competitive wilderness your DIY-programme offers vital resources.'
' Your affordable DIY-educate events not only help us raise our game as professional artists, but also make us feel connected. The combination of practical and skill-based workshops and discursive events is constructive.’
