Graduate Accelerator mentee call out

Closing date 15 September 2023

Scotland’s largest provider of studio spaces across Scotland is launching a new Graduate Accelerator programme for Edinburgh-based arts graduates. The Graduate Accelerator programme will support graduates as they move from higher education to establishing themselves as artists or creative businesses, with a special focus on those facing additional social, physical or economic barriers in their fields.

The Accelerator will run from 30th October 2023 until 25th October 2024. Graduates will be matched with a mentor who is an experienced leader in their field, who will help them to develop their creative practice or business across the 12-month programme featuring group sessions, goal setting and skill specific workshops. Graduates will also receive a 12-month co-work membership for Wasps’ new creative industries hub at Granton Station, providing access to a flexible workspace, meeting rooms, exhibition and gallery space and a staffed reception as well as access to Wasps’ national network of creative tenants. The programme will also provide the opportunity for graduates to showcase their work at one of Wasps’ galleries.

The deadline for applications is 12:00 (noon) on Friday 15th September.
