Introducing the Jamboree 2018 blog
The Jamboree team will be blogging here to share our preparations for Jamboree 2018 taking place on the 28th June – 1st July 2018.
What is Jamboree?
Artists LOW PROFILE invite visual artists, curators and programmers to become involved in co-delivering a programme of presentations, micro-exhibitions, activities and discussions to share practice at Jamboree 2018. The event will take place from the 28th June -1st July 2018 in a relaxed outdoor setting, on the Dartington Estate near Totnes, (Devon, UK) and will bring together 150 visual artists, curators & programmers from around the UK. LOW PROFILE hope that attendees will meet new people, find out about each other’s work, build new relationships and make connections that lead to new projects.
