Q-Art is run by a team of students and graduates. Our aim is to break down some of the barriers to art education and contemporary art and support people into, through and beyond art education. We do this through: our open cross college crit programme , which we run monthly across London as well as various UK art colleges for artists of all backgrounds to attend or present work in. We produce publications and videos. And we hold discussion events each time a publication or video is released. We also run educational workshops for art colleges and galleries around the UK. Our programme mirrors the academic year and runs from September–June.
