FELTSPACE WRITERS PROGRAM

FELTspace believes that part of building and maintaining a thriving art community means providing space to develop and engage with critical discussion and writing. In 2015 FELTspace relaunched the writers' program to further our aim of helping curators, artists and writers, to develop their arts writing practice.

This program provides opportunities for writers to have their work published, as well as encouraging critical discourse around the FELTspace exhibition program. FELTspace will facilitate professional development by working closely with the chosen writers to connect them to artists, writers and local publications. Writers can also receive feedback and editorial assistance in the development of their pieces.
