Work in Progress Sessions

The St Andrews Centre for Contemporary Art runs regular work-in-progress sessions each semester, which provide a supportive and nurturing environment to discuss articles, chapters, catalogue essays and other pieces of writing together with peers, and to workshop ideas, structure and the publication process. If you would like to share your work via an in-progress session, please get in touch! Sessions generally run once or twice a semester, in the first or last weeks of term. Sessions are run online via MS Teams. All are welcome to join – please use the website contact form to receive the link and a copy of the text.
