A Report by Dr Alison Slater, Dr Amanda Ravetz and Kwong Lee has recently been published on ‘Analysing Artist’s Continual Professional Development (CPD) in Greater Manchester: towards an integrated approach for talent development’.
The pilot study ‘Analysing Artist’s Continual Professional Development (CPD) in Greater Manchester: towards an integrated approach for talent development’ was undertaken collaboratively between MIRIAD (the Manchester Institute for Research and Innovation in Art and Design) at Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU) and Castlefield Gallery (CG). The primary research on which this report is based was gathered between June and October 2012. The purpose of the research was to question whether the provision of artist development opportunities in Greater Manchester is tailored towards what artists need/desire and to ask how the current provision relates to the long-term impact and ‘deferred’ value of artist development and to notions of career success.
