Satellites Programme

Satellites Programme is Collective's development programme for artists and producers based in Scotland, specifically developed to facilitate practitioners at a pivotal, emergent, point in their career. The programme consists of discussions, events, exhibitions, retreats, mentoring and an annual publication, seeking to foster criticality through peer development and review. Selection for the programme is through an open submission to a new panel of selectors, appointed by Collective each year.

Volunteers are core to the achievements and ambition of Collective. Their creative and practical support make Collective what it is today. Volunteers have supported artists projects, initiated and organised their own events and contributed to the development of the organisation. Collective is proud to support the development of individuals and was pleased to have our work with volunteers recognised through an investing in volunteers award in 2010.
