Art eco market model
Artist led side: is often free and DIY anyone can do it
Collection commercial side: is paid but have to be invited. This is the artist establishment.

A game of making a new network and new peers...
board of the Local level... residency’s else where might help access to small funded spaces, regional galleries get networked nationally and internationally
Renegotiate on a different level... pathways through the post art school route have no recognised best route like you might if you were say, a dentist post training!
Use one of two tactics, financial or benefits arts practice often mutually exclusive...
How to stay avant-garde? what is local?
Talking about myself as an early career artist at 55 having practiced for more than 30 years isn’t the right categorisation... questions need to be asked around what is professional context. Could be mid career? But I am not receiving funding or receiving or negotiating regular invitations or have work with National Portfolio Organisation like spike island, art dealer etc... though I have run an arts spaces have not had work recognised through bursaries and or prizes.
