CSAD’s Inc. Space provides an opportunity for our graduates to spend an additional year with the School to launch their own business or a sustainable career as a practicing artist or designer.
During the 12 months they receive mentoring from an academic team member to help them develop their practice, a mentor to help them develop their business skills and their own studio within the Inc. Space at CSAD. They have access to all of the School’s workshops and facilities and support from our technical team to continue to develop their practical skills. The School also works closely with the University’s Centre for Student Entrepreneurship and a wide range of professionals who provide workshops, talks and advice to ensure they’re in the strongest position to succeed in their chosen careers in the long term.
A diversity of ceramic artists have been working in Inc. this past year working as production potters (Isa Belstein) as sculptors and educators (Nathan Mullis) figurative modellers and academics (Mikky Saunby). This year the scheme includes a bumper pack of entrepreneurs from our BA Ceramics programme:
