Opportunities for Artists and their Art

Here’s a round up of what’s been happening at Axisweb this month. We’ve got news about what our members have been up to and a new way to find relevant opportunities.
New Opportunities Membership

We’ve recently launched an ‘Opportunity Membership’ for artists and art professionals where you can search our extensive list of exhibitions, prizes, artist calls, commissions, residencies, jobs etc.

Prices for opportunity membership start from just £1.50 per month.

If you are already a subscribing artist member of Axisweb, you receive ‘Axisweb Opportunities’ as part of your artist membership package.
