Coming soon... Jamboree 2020 // Dartington, UK // June /July 2020

Jamboree is an on-going project initiated by artists LOW PROFILE. 

The Jamboree project aims to:

  • offer a space for artists & curators to make new productive relationships
  • support artists & curators to meet, and to share practice, test out ideas & broaden the reach of their work
  • offer a space for discussion, sharing of concerns and mutual support
  • create social environments that support the development of a geographically dispersed, national network of artists and curators

Jamboree is inspired and informed by LOW PROFILE’s experiences of being involved with LADA’s DIY scheme; EXPO in Nottingham; Diskurs Festival in Giessen, Germany; The Cornwall Workshops & Conventions and their own self-made residency projects with the artists Hunt & Darton and as part of the ‘Plymouth Residency’ with the artists Barry SykesSophie MallettBeth Emily RichardsSophie HopeAnia Bas and Elizabeth Masterton.

To date, there have been two successful iterations of Jamboree:

Jamboree #1, which LOW PROFILE initiated and developed with support from PAC Home (Plymouth Arts Centre’s associate programme) at Plymouth Art Centre in Autumn/Winter 2015.

Jamboree 2018, which LOW PROFILE initiated and developed in partnership with a-n The Artists Information Company and Plymouth College of Art and was part funded and supported using public funds by Arts Council England.

Who are Jamboree events for?

Jamboree events (to date) have been aimed at critically engaged artists, curators, arts organisers and programmers who are practicing professionally (whether on an independent or salaried basis) from around the UK and further afield. The events (to date) have been designed to generate peer networks, with participant-centred programmes that encourage honest exchange and professional development. For these reasons, they are not suitable for current undergraduate students and those who are not professionally engaged in visual arts practice.
