Spectra: ND Artist Development Programme

Neuk Collective presents Spectra: our 4-week ND Artist Development Programme

Neuk Collective is excited to launch our first development programme for neurodivergent artists.


Spectra will cover major issues for ND artists including navigating funding applications, employment rights, reasonable adjustments, advocating for yourself and finding support.

Sessions are run by ND artists for ND artists and peer sharing and support is a big part of the programme. We encourage participants to commit to the whole programme and invest in building a ND peer group. 

Each session will start with a presentation on a named
topic, followed by a short break. The second half of each session will be dedicated to group discussion and questions.

What do you need to know?

– Spectra takes place in four 1.25 hour sessions on Monday evenings (7pm-8.15pm):
  Monday 17th July
  Monday 24th July
  Monday 31st July
  Monday 7th August

– Limited to 8 participants

– Open to neurodivergent artists across the UK

As a pilot programme, we are making places available on a subsidised basis (£40 per person). However we recognise this may still be unaffordable for some of the artists who may need the programme most. We therefore have a limited number of bursary (£20) and scholarship (£0) places available. 


Applications close at noon on Tuesday 19th June, or once places are booked out – whichever is soonest. So please book early to avoid disappointment.
