CENSUS is a periodic survey of artists in the Greater Manchester region and a way for PROFORMA to map artists, curators and practices. This will take the form of remote interviews, studio visits where possible, informal crits and/or general catch up to discuss your work and ambitions as an artist in the region. Artists and curators from any discipline and career stages are welcome to apply for CENSUS.


Please complete the form on this page and we will be in touch to arrange a suitable time to introduce ourselves and a free one-hour session.


Sessions will take place with Chris Bailkoski on the last Tuesday of the month and will be at 10am, 12pm and 2pm on a first come, first served basis. We are aware that this limited service may be oversubscribed but we will endeavour to increase the number of days per month to suit demand. 


CENSUS is completely confidential, but we will gather specific information to ensure that we understand the range of needs, the diversity of practices and urgent areas of support so we can then act on these for the benefit of all artists and curators in the region. For those who are willing to, we will share our experiences publicly through social media and other outlets though this is not an essential criterion for CENSUS.  


Please clearly state below which session you would prefer: 10am, 12pm or 2pm on Tuesdays 25th August, 29th September or 27th October.
