Cabbage’s Resilience Programme was established in 2020, in response to Covid-19’s impact on freelance creative practice. The programme supports a cohort of artists and curators over a 6 month period, each with tailored professional development opportunities and outcomes that are self directed by the artists. Cabbage prioritises slow conversation & creation, and it is the programme’s aim to give each participant the chance to pause and reflect on their practice, without the pressure of delivery or outcome. 

With thanks to Strangefield and Creative Scotland for their support.
