Open Forum 2015-16

The aim of Open Forum 2015 was to allow Matt Roberts Arts to use our experience to provide advice to artists in regions where the commercial sector is developing and less visible. There were 8 one-to-one feedback sessions on developing your commercial practice with a commercial gallerist and  8 separate one to one sessions with Matt Roberts, discussing ways to fund your practice. Reviews were supported by the host venue, Matt Roberts Arts, and Arts Council England through Grants for the Arts.
