Cultivating spaces for extraordinary artists

Artistic Support


These mentoring sessions closed in May 2022.

We plan to re-start these sessions once additional funding has been secured and the new Artistic Director/ CEO is in post.​​​​​​​

Mentoring was offered via phone/skype/zoom on a first come first served basis to any Disabled visual artist across the UK at any stage of their career.

The mentoring was open ended with no limit to the number of sessions available. Each session lasted for one hour.

Hear what some of our artists had to say:

“DASH’s approach to personalised mentoring has created a tailormade service allowing me to express myself creatively and professionally”

"The support from DASH over the years has been invaluable. It’s helped me develop as an artist and given me the confidence to apply for opportunities, these have included, residences, grant applications, exhibitions, Scholarships and jobs"​​​​​​​

"DASH have boosted my confidence and I now claim the title of ‘artist’. I am sure everyone’s path is different. For myself it has given me the space to work out:

  • Where I am & where I would like to be in the future
  • What I need to prioritise
  • How to re-organise my working practice to be more efficient
  • Who my market is and how do I reach them?

Having a clear path has made my design and creating process easier. For the first time in ages, I am not second guessing myself, I am just creating."​​​​​​
