The next exciting project coming up is an enterprise workshop, tailored for the artists’ and artisans’ needs, that will be piloted in Florence in January 2016, and in Limassol in June 2016. The duration of the workshop will be 2 weeks. Gecko will be sending 10 artists and artisans to each of the workshops and half of them will be staying for further 45 days for a work placement. All expenses are covered by the Erasmus+ Programme. This includes flights, accommodation, local travel expenses and pocket money. Candidates must be under 30 years of age, UK residents and be working in the creative sector (Fine Arts, Ceramics, Jewellery, Digital Products, Textiles + screen printing, Sculpture, Glassware, Furniture, Leather).

If you are an artist/artisan, or a sector professional, education provider or business support advisor working in the creative sector and you would like to engage with our project or one of the workshops (only valid for artists and artisans/eligibility criteria apply), they would love to hear from you!
