'AA2A Engage' - our membership group

Sign up to AA2A Engage - free membership for past AA2A artists

'AA2A Engage' is an active membership group of over 200 previous AA2A artist who are prepared to act as role models for students, providing insights into professional life as an artist or designer-maker and into the creative community outside universities and colleges.

Engage artists help us develop our policies by filling in occassional questionnaires and are the first to be offered paid opportunities from AA2A. This includes a programme of direct engagement with students at host institutions e.g....

  • A studio visit - show a small group of students round a studio or visit a local group studio
  • Visit a private view, exhibition or 'Open studios' event - introducing students to different events
  • Introduction to self-employment - artists talking to students about being self-employed
  • Deliver an online session for students

Info for AA2A host institutions

AA2A Engage can be used as an employability resource by current host institutions. We provide them with a Googlemap showing which AA2A Engage artists are local to them and linking to their AA2A webpages. The map can be found in the 'Key Documents' folder, in the Coordinators login area of this website.
